LIVING WITH ROBOTS -- Honda - The Power of Dreams (series of short documentaries)

As suggested in “In Good Company?: On the Threshold of Robotic Companions,” how are relationships formed online related to the idea of self-object?

It is easy for these online relationships to become like the idea Turkle introduced of "self-object." We do not actually see these people so we do not know in completeness who they are. We lean on them and maybe even fill some of our emotional voids with them. Sadly they are human so even if we do not know everything about them and think that makes the relationship easier we are bound to be disapointed.
Jonathan Schneider's comment, November 6, 2012 10:07 AM
The idea of the "self-object" is all about the fragility of our own psyches. The fragile individual makes the self-object a part of himself or herself, creating a somewhat imaginary persona for "the other" that satisfies the fragile individual. Sound a bit psychoanalytic? Thank Heinz Kohut for that. In online relationships, we might only know someone through a half-light, or only by what they choose to divulge about themselves... but this lets the fragile individual imagine the other person in a way that may temporarily strengthen his or her fragility.
Sung Hyun Kim's comment, November 7, 2012 8:32 PM
Online relationships could turn dangerous since we are able to create another fake image in the virtual world. Turkle explains that self object is a sense of self that people project towards the others however not having to show every single aspect of yourself. Social Networking System has created a space where creating a fake identity and interacting with other individuals possible. However, despite the convenience of being able to communicate instantly, it could also create dangers to some as well. We may be able to carry on the conversation well over on the screen but we're never sure who you're really talking to.

4 things you need to know to help your students manage their online reputation [Infographic] | Computer Literacy | Scoop.it

 

We often hear complaints about what students say and do online, but we often neglect to look into educators helping them manage their online reputation. This infographic is geared toward adults, but it can serve as a great starting point for conversations and activities that educators can engage in with students to help them to establish an active digital footprint that represents who they want to be perceived as online.

DoorBot.. see who is knocking via your mobile device | Computer Literacy | Scoop.it

"Who doesn’t love a good crowdsource item? Edison Junior is currently seeking funding for its DoorBot, a doorbell with Wi-Fi connectivity that lets you see who is at your door from your smartphone. Even better, the device is designed to work with the keyless lock Lockitron, which can also be controlled via a smartphone. In combination, the two would allow users to usher visitors into their home from wherever they happen to be."
