Quotes Maya Liked

Sherry Turkle
“Because you can text while doing something else, texting does not seem to take time but to give you time. This is more than welcome; it is magical.”
Sherry Turkle, Alone Together: Why We Expect More from Technology and Less from Each Other

Sherry Turkle
“When Thoreau considered "where I live and what I live for," he tied together location and values. Where we live doesn't just change how we live; it informs who we become. Most recently, technology promises us lives on the screen. What values, Thoreau would ask, follow from this new location? Immersed in simulation, where do we live, and what do we live for?”
