Sherry Turkle on alienation in our technological society

Sherry Turkle, whose 1995 book Life on the Screen: Identity in the Age of the Internet was much talked about when I was in library school, has an article in the current Forbes Magazine that updates her insights about human alienation in our technological culture. She has a notable ability to take us deep below the surface of our ordinary busy way of living, and she does it in an accessible way.
