    Default Disconnect to Connect

    In what ways does technology impede our ability to connect with each another? In what ways could it enhance the ways we connect with others?

    What's your personal policy for interacting with technology while being with other people simultaneously?

    the internet desensitizes you to a lot of things. the main example people use is porn but you can also get desensitized to other things like gore or violence in general. Echo chambers are common to encounter and extremely dangerous to impressionable minds. How our consumption of technology affects our dopamine receptors is something else to think about too; with the flood of praise and admiration we can get quickly with little effort it'll only raise our standards to levels that aren't realistically achievable in a worst case scenario.

    it enhances by shattering physical barriers and the time it takes to share information. go back in time 30 years and tell your parents "hey when u have a child and s/he's grown up a bit you'll be able to have a clear face to face convo with someone on the other side of the world using just a screen and electricity" pwn is kinda proof of that too lol

    if i'm with someone then i'll try to use technology as little as possible unless we're both using it for entertainment or logistics. idk just paying attention to those around you and making them feel like you think they're important is a big thing for me. I've walked out on a date because the girl kept checking her phone midway through my sentences before 10/10 would do again.
