Karen Dietz's curator insight, January 5, 2014 1:27 PM

This article makes me both sad and more committed to storytelling than ever before. The author, Meg Garber, is talking with and about Sherry Turkle, the writer of the book Alone Together: Why We Expect More From Technology and Less From Each Other, and working on her next book Reclaiming Conversation.


The article is about how we are so focused on the screens in front of us that we are sacrificing actually talking with each other. Where does storytelling go, along with its benefits of building empathy, relationship, context, meaning, wisdom, imagination, inspiration, passion, purpose, creativity, etc.)? Down the tubes, I'm afraid.


This phenomenon is prevalent in the US today. This is a consequence of technology that I don't think is such a great outcome. The article is a fascinating discussion of what is happening today and well worth the read.


So my resolve to engage in more storytelling through face-to-face conversations just ramped up today. Because this also provides significant business benefits.


How about you?

There is nothing more enjoyerable then a good rabbit with friends, or talking to a new person finding out about THEM, not telling them how great we are. Nature gave us two ears and one mouth!
