Great series

I like what Sheryl Turkle said "getting people to focus not on what computers do for us, but to us." In this day where computers have in some sense put a large disconnect in how we relate to one another on a human level, I agree that computers have become an all consuming component in our daily lives that have provided ease and efficiency, however I miss the tangible interaction of the human spirit that computers cannot duplicate.
