    1. she

      me pasa mucho esto cuando estoy con mis amigos y familia y en realidad es triste ya no parecemos humanos, ahora parecemos extraterrestes que sin el telefono no funcionamos.

    2. “Have we forgot what conversation is? What friendship is?”

      Esto es una de las preguntas que hace a diario cuando vemos a otras personas envueltas con la tecnología... pero, nos hacemos esa misma pregunta nosotros?

    3. Look at all these damaged subhumans that have fallen for technology’s addictive and noxious appeal! the book insists. Look at the victims of the digital toxin who need curing!

      Si parecemos subhumanos, porque nos desconectamos de cualquier interacción presencial por estar viviendo en el telefono, computadoras y tablets. Somos unas victimas adictivas a todo lo digital que hemos perdido el sentido y el toque humano de tener una buena conversación, una cena y una salida sin utilizar y desconectarnos de lo digital.

    2. Our phones are not accessories, but psychologically potent devices that change not just what we do but who we are.

      Estoy totalmente de acuerdo con esta oración en particular. A través de los años hemos visto como el ser humano sigue dependiendo de estos aparatos electrónicos.

    3. Daddy,” she said, “stop Googling. I want to talk to you.” A 15-year-old boy told me that someday he wanted to raise a family, not the way his parents are raising him (with phones out during meals and in the park and during his school sports events) but the way his parents think they are raising him — with no phones at meals and plentiful family conversation.

      Esto es muy triste y lamentable, se van perdiendo el desarrollo y progreso de sus hijos por estar pendientes a los celulares. Esta bien utilizar tecnología pero en su momento. Hay millones de experiencias para compartir con los hijos que no van a poder regresar una vez sean adultos.

    Help. I'm enslaved by my smartphone.

    1. I feel naked/lost/afraid without my phone. I am enslaved by my smartphone.

      This article, and sentence, reminds me of the discussion we are having this semester, in my class #inf115, with @avunque. We are discussing two other articles. One is by Sherry Turkle called "Stop Googling. Let's Talk". http://www.nytimes.com/2015/09/27/opinion/sunday/stop-googling-lets-talk.html?_r=1

      The other one is by Nathan Jurgenson (@nathanjurgenson) called "Fear of Screens".http://thenewinquiry.com/essays/fear-of-screens/

      This year the topic for our class is Reclaiming the Web, which comes together with Sherry Turkle’s new book called Reclaiming Conversation: The Power of Talk in a Digital Age.

      You can read the blog post by @avunque

    1. “We catch ourselves not looking into the eyes of our children or taking the time to talk with them just to have a few more hits of our email,”

      A veces con la vida ocupada que tenemos, sin darnos cuenta cometemos esto. A menudo me pasa con mi familia, mientras me estan hablando.

      inf115
    2. For me this article was amazing, I think Jurgenson wants to remind us that even though we do have technology at the touch of our fingertips not everything is technological. This article wants us to embrace and be grateful for all the information that we have and the way we have it. It's not bad to use technology as part of your daily life, for me it doesn't define the way you communicate with others and engage in conversations.

    1. In conversation, things go best if you pay close attention and learn how to put yourself in someone else’s shoes

      Aprendemos a ser empaticos con los demas.

      inf115
    2. If we are not content to be alone, we turn others into the people we need them to be. If we don’t know how to be alone, we’ll only know how to be lonely.

      La felicidad la encontramos en nosotros mismo cuando dejamos de buscarla en los demas. Naturalmente el ser humano siempre depende de otro ser, pero hay que aprender a saber estar solo, a ser independiente.

      inf115
    3. at least from conversation that is open-ended and spontaneous, in which we play with ideas and allow ourselves to be fully present and vulnerable.

      Tipo de conversaciones que nos ayudan ser nosotros mismos. La confianza en uno mismo es solo el comienzo de una buena conversacion.

      inf115
    4. with no phones at meals and plentiful family conversation.

      Deberia ser asi, siempre que voy a comer en algun lugar todos estan pegados al telefono.

      inf115
    5. One teacher observed that the students “sit in the dining hall and look at their phones. When they share things together, what they are sharing is what is on their phones.”

      It is kinda worrying that kids are getting more used to their phones and less to human interaction to the point that most of them become angry of they don't have their tech stuff

      inf115
    6. It’s that we don’t allow these conversations to happen in the first place because we keep our phones in the landscape.

      I agree, but also think that even though this might be true, there are a lot of people that are trying to break that habit

      inf115
    7. We’ve gotten used to being connected all the time

      I completely agree with this statement, we see how disconnected we become of each other and how much we depend on mobile devices

    1. In theory, you know the difference between your self and your Facebook self. But lines blur and it can be hard to keep them straight. It’s like telling very small lies over time. You forget the truth because it is so close to the lies.

      Turkle and Jurgenson are both trying to make a warning on how we should remind ourselves, to balance these worlds, by not getting lost in the "blurred lines". We should be grateful for this information, because they are speaking up, on everyone's behalf. Find yourself in all this information, and analyze were your should correct yourself or better yourself.

    1. One start toward reclaiming conversation is to reclaim solitude. Some of the most crucial conversations you will ever have will be with yourself.

      This example can apply to writers, from years ago, who probably too, passed a lot of time just writing, and probably were asked to be more social. So this concept has always existed, this is just another era.

      #inf115
    2. A VIRTUOUS circle links conversation to the capacity for self-reflection. When we are secure in ourselves, we are able to really hear what other people have to say.

      But this really refers to the development of each person.

      #inf115
    3. The capacity for empathic conversation goes hand in hand with the capacity for solitude.

      We have to remind ourselves, that this "monster" as some refer to it, is a vehicle of communication.

      #inf115
    4. In conversation, things go best if you pay close attention and learn how to put yourself in someone else’s shoes.

      But we are not less of a person. Always remember that.

      #inf115
    5. This is true. But people sometimes really, don't feel the need to be present at the exact moment where they are, and feel the need to escape.

      #inf115
    6. It’s that we don’t allow these conversations to happen in the first place because we keep our phones in the landscape.

      Are we sure the technology that mediates conversations actually impedes it or at least diminishes them? After all, tech has always mediated conversation (ie. telephone, pencils, language...).

      For example, when the telephone was introduced, some people actually feared it would take intimacy out of the conversation. Did it happen?

      Cannot it be simply that the very idea of conversation changes with time and the technologies which mediate it?

    7. Of course, we can find empathic conversations today, but the trend line is clear.

      What is this evidence?

      inf115
    8. Across generations, technology is implicated in this assault on empathy

      Who implicates technology? Is this in the research, is this an assertion? Like the statement about people killing each other, not guns, who is really responsible?

    1. This refers to rather small bits of information ("What's the pythagorean theory?" "Where is Bora Bora?" "How do I make mashed potatoes"

      What is missing here are the things we add to the web to enhance our own later discovery, our streams of bookmarks, a history of photos in flickr/instagram can helps us remember where were on a past date, blogs that record our process through a project. I have relied on Tripit.com (travel reservations and such) to figure out what conferences I went to in the past.

    1. In fact, his boss at the time, Mike Sendall, noted the words “Vague but exciting” on the cover.

      I like to speculate an alternative present/future where if there was a different boss, maybe more of an accountant who wrote "Vague and not essential to out mission. Get back to that database project Berners-Lee!"

      Would the web have been invented? By whom? What would it look like?
