Some meditation on the impact our current, popular technologies on our social graces and such — worth reading, perhaps: “Technology and the New ‘Me’ Generation” at the WSJ.
(For those who would like a not-exactly-related but more positive scientific thoughts on the effects technology is having on us, try this Discover article from earlier this year: “How Google Is Making Us Smarter.”)
P.S. The touch of irony in linking to the above commentary on a blog and adding links to social media at the bottom is not lost on me. 🙂
