Smart Phones and Us

Smart Phones and Us

Post a complete first draft of a 1,000-word essay (about four pages double spaced) in which you explore at least ONE of the following questions in depth: Cyber anthropologist Amber Case argues in her TED Talk (https://www.ted.com/talks/amber_case_we_are_all_cyborgs_now) that cell phones create an “ambient intimacy.” Do you think this ability to connect at anytime with anyone increases or decreases the depth of our connection to other people? REQUIRED SOURCES: For supporting evidence, use at least two sources from our class assignments. Sources may include assigned videos (such as TED Talks) and readings. Also, you may rely on your own observations in the world around you either through firsthand experiences or experiences of friends/family.
