Generational Divide: Digital Technology's Paradoxical Message

In an interview Sherry Turkle did with Aleks Krotoski for a BBC project, "The Virtual Revolution," she spoke about how young people think about privacy and how their experiences with digital technology shape their connections and exchanges with others.

Major points include:

  • Kids desire to text instead of talk, and the implications
  • The current generation is retreating from real communication
  • More inputs are being received with less time given for reflection
