End of Absence

HarrisHeadshotCloseAdvances in technology have changed the way we work, the way we socialize, and the way we learn. But not everybody knows that. In his book the End of Absence, author Michael Harris reminds us that people born after 1985 will not have experienced adulthood without the internet, and children today will never know what life was like before facebook, twitter, and iPhones. On this episode, Michael Harris discusses the impact of the ‘end of absence’ and what constant connectedness means for the well being of future generations. He’ll also tell us how we can mitigate the effects of technology and preserve the benefits of periodic absence while still maintaining our social connections.

Keep connected… 😉
