Closer Together, Further Apart
The Effect of Technology and the Internet on Parenting, Work, and RelationshipsBook - 2014
In less than a single generation digital technology has dramatically and permanently altered the ways in which humans connect and communicate with each other. Conversations and information transfers that once either were not possible or took days to complete now occur in an instant. Technological advances are profoundly affecting humankind forcing us to change on multiple levels. Today's generation gap is totally different from previous generation gaps because of digital technology. While digital immigrants baby boomers may be looking to confirm their theory that indeed this younger generation is going "to hell in a handbasket" just like their parents claimed that "sex, drugs, and rock & roll" were ruining them, readers of both generations will make a surprising discovery. Here the authors take readers on an exploration of how digital technology and the Internet have changed the way we communicate, relate, work, parent, and mate. -- From publisher's website.
