This is a fascinating interview about the way technology is shaping who we are. It is by Krista Tippett from NPR who does the "On Being" peices that explores religious, spirituality, and ethics. She interviews a prof from MIT who heads an effort looking at the subjective side of technology's impact on our lives. This interview - "Alive Enough" - has profound implications who how we, as followers of Jesus, are having our souls and relationships formed (deformed) by technology. This is not a romantic/nostaligic plea for pre-electricity life and huts in the wilderness. Technology is held up as meaningful. We have to stop being used and shaped by it and start using it to shape a more just world. It is about 45 minutes long. So, don't start until you have the time.
