The Inner History of Devices

An interesting presentation by the famous MIT sociologist Sherry Turkle called "The Inner History of Devices". In the 30 minutes of her presentation (followed by 30 minutes of Q&A) the talk brings you back to a hidden subject within our daily lives: the feelings we have for our devices.

Check it out and you'll come up with your own ideas about the subject, in my case it made me realize that my wife's idea of me having an emotional attachment to my laptop actually makes sense! Think about it, I work, talk to my family, connect with old friends and have fun through the same device, so who could blame me?

Now take a couple of minutes, and think about the device that has or is affecting you the most ;)
