Team Human

Recently, I came across the work of Douglas Rushkoff and his podcasts, Team Human, where he explores what it means to stay human in a digital age and how technology might be pulling us away from genuine human connection as we adapt more to machines instead of machines adapting to us. In a recent monologue, he discusses how through social media, we have become more reactive than responsive to situations, denying us the step of reflection before responding. This is not necessarily right nor wrong, but to explore the impact of our way of communicating with others is worth discussing, especially as we look at an increasing divisiveness in American society.

i've included a monologue (from Ep. 51) by Douglas Rushkoff set to a video montage created by Daniel De La Rosa.
