Sherry Turkle directs the MIT Initiative on Technology and Self. Her book, Alone Together
created a catchword for anxiety about the alienating potential of technology. But that's not really Sherry Turkle's message. Krista Tippett explores the real challenge she poses - that we must lead examined lives with our digital objects – actively shaping technology to human purposes. Sherry Turkle offers practical wisdom - from how to declare email bankruptcy; to teaching our children the rewards of solitude. [Broadcast Date: November 15, 2012]
