Is Social Networking Killing You?
An article on the NY Times website caught my eye today and I thought I would share it with the class. Not so much for the content of the article, rather for a comment that was left by one the readers.
Here’s the comment of interest:
“Anyone aware of critiques of technics in advance of the advent of so-called social networking already understood every bit of this.
Yet social networking and all manner of technophilia will continue no matter the clear impact on human mental and physical health. Why? Because they are integral to the project of preparing humans to become cyborgs.
One need not read scientific journals and the writings of “futurists” to understand what we are becoming. Paying attention to popular periodicals tells the tale quite well.”

I want to write more. Have a lack of time. Will link to this post from next one.
