Connected: Love, Death, & Technology

To be whole. To be complete. Wildness reminds us what it means to be human, what we are connected to rather than what we are separate from. — Terry Tempest Williams

Inspiration of the Day:
“From the beginning of time, every new technological advancement has brought with it a complex mix of positive and negative repercussions as well as unintended consequences. I set out to make a film that addresses the potential of our twenty-first-century technologies and the importance of harnessing their powers. I also wanted to examine what can happen when these new technologies take over and sometimes overwhelm our personal lives. What does it mean to be connected in the twenty-first century? How can we use the power of all these connections to turn things around for the better? I titled the film ‘Connected: An Autoblogography about Love, Death, and Technology.'” Tiffany Shlain, one of Newsweek’s ‘Women Shaping the 21st Century,’ shares a thoughtful reflection about the making (as well as a glimpse) of her new award-winning feature documentary.

Be The Change:
Today, make an effort to use technology in ways that help you connect more meaningfully to people.
