How the Internet Enables Intimacy [video talk from TED]

In my previous post, I shared a piece of research that supports the notion that internet users not only have a larger and more diverse group of people whom they confide in, but they tend to be more active in the public sphere. Along the same chain of thought, below is an interesting talk by Stefana Broadbent discussing her research and findings about how technology and the internet in specific help foster intimacy. It is really taken for granted how easier nowadays it is to stay in touch with our loved ones when we are millions of miles away from them, helping us to maintain strong relationships with those who care about even when we are far away. In turn our ability to commute and communicate helps us go further away from our “homes” in the pursuit for a better life.

Hope you enjoyed the talk as much as I did. What program is your choice for staying in touch with your loved ones? Skype, MSN, Gtalk…? Do you agree with Broadbent’s findings? Lets us hear you thoughts.

  2. How can social media help in promoting hybrid cars not for profit purposes rather for cause awareness and futuristic solutions?
  3. Is the message that hybrid car manufacturers and sellers are conveying clear enough for the audience it addresses? And how can it be made clearer?
