Sherry Turkle has spent a career composing an ethnography of our digital world. Since the earliest days of computer culture, she has been sounding an alarm about our engagement with digital technology; but the past year has forced us into more screen-dependent isolation than ever before. Tying together her coming-of-age with her pathbreaking research on technology, empathy and ethics, she explores the wonders of computer culture and the urgent need for authentic human connection.
