What does it mean to be connected? A conversation with filmmaker Tiffany Shlain
Are you unable to go more than an hour without checking your email? Are you and your laptop or smartphone inseparable? Or are you so overwhelmed by technology to the point of shunning it all? We continue to have a love-hate relationship with technology as it makes us more connected and more interdependent each day. Connected, a new documentary/memoir by Tiffany Shlain, explores what it means to be connected in the 21st century and what that interdependence means for the human species. This week on Voices from the Edge, Jo Ann and Dave talk with Shlain about her new film and the personal experiences that prompted her to examine connectedness and interdependence.
Next week on Voices from the Edge, Jo Ann and Dave will examine the fraying of the middle class and how that is impacting Oregonians.
