Surviving Technology

#sxsw #surviving

This solo presentation from the founder / CEO of the Austin-based company Stratfor (as well as the author of the best-selling books "The Next 100 Years," "The Next Decade" and "The Future of War") will cover "Pseudo-togetherness" caused by social media and the true lack of solidarity. Friedman's talk will cover our current transition to spending more time speaking to more people (but with less substance), plus future of the human race transcending technology. Using examples with online dating vs the old ways of meeting people, this brilliant thinker will also discuss what society loses in our continuing embrace technology in the context of how we lost body language with the telephone.
