With instant-messaging, email and social networking websites, it’s become easier than ever to stay in touch with people; but some would argue that the quality of our interaction is suffering from all this new technology. With each new generation, it’s common to find people with a resistance to change and a nostalgia for the “good ole’ days.” I often wonder if this longing to turn back the clocks is well-founded and if the world really would be better if it still looked the way our elders remember it.
The question I’d like to pose this month: is the internet helping people to better connect with one another OR is the internet making us more distant? We want to hear from you. Tell us what you think.
