Writing

I watched a Ted talk about the loneliness brought by technological progress. She said she wrote a book to celebrate our life on the internet, but now technology has changed almost everything about us. In 1996 her daughter came to watch her speak, but now she just sent a text message,and she sleep with her cellphone. It’s the same for everyone.People are using their phones in class and meetings,even with everything. We don’t need to talk to people anymore,but actually we need. Now we need to focus on the many ways technology can lead us back to our real life , our own bodies, our own communities

Revised

I watched a Ted talk about the loneliness brought by technological progress/improvement. She said she wrote a book about “celebrating our life on the internet”, but now technology has changed almost everything around us. In 1996 her daughter came to watch her presentation , but now she just sent a text message,and she sleeps with her cellphone. It’s the same for everyone. People are using their phones in all occasions, in classes and meetings, even with everything. It seems like we don’t need to talk to people anymore,but actually we do. Now we need to focus on the many ways technology can lead us back to our real life , our own bodies, our own communities.
