I will be on a panel with Prof Sherry Turkle from MIT (author of Alone Together, the third in her trilogy examining identity in the age of the internet) and Prof Nick Tyler from UCL at the British Library next Friday 3 June at 1830. Here’s the blurb:

“As technology infiltrates every aspect of our lives it’s become a life support system without which we can’t survive” (James Burke).

Are we too dependent on our technologies, or are they the key to a bright future? Are we subjugated or emancipated by them?

Speakers include technology writer and broadcaster Aleks Krotoski; Sherry Turkle (Professor of the Social Studies of Science and Technology at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology and author of books including Alone Together: Why We Expect More from Technology and Less from Each Other) and Nick Tyler, Chadwick Professor of Civil Engineering, University College London.

Rather excited. Here’s the interview I did with Prof Turkle for last year’s Virtual Revolution series on the BBC.
