"The feeling that 'no one is listening to me' makes us want to spend time with machines that seem to care about us."
- How confident am I in my own abilities to have a conversation, to connect with others in real time?
- How do I use technology to satisfy my need for connection?
- Can you relate to what Turkle says about the feeling of "no one is listening"? If so, is it technology alone that you use as a salve or other things as well (work, over-scheduling, addictions, etc.)
- Turkle encourages us to first start seeing "solitude as a good thing. Make room for it." How can you create and embrace solitude?
