BREAK-OUT GROUPS • Do you consider yourself “always on?” ! • Is here such a thing as being “too connected?” ! • Where do you draw the line?

“What I'm seeing is a generation that says consistently, 'I would rather text than make a telephone call.' Why? It's less risky. I can just get the information out there. I don't have to get all involved; it's more efficient. I would rather text than see somebody face to face.” –SHERRY TURKLE http://www.ted.com/talks/sherry_turkle_alone_together.html

• Context • Increase in solitary living • Decrease in confidants • Bowling Alone • “Passive consumption” vs. “composed communication” • What do you do? • What would Baym say? • What would boyd say?
