The Digital Mystique

Monday, March 16
11:30AM - 11:50AM

Austin Convention Center
Ballroom G
Austin Convention Center


In The Digital Mystique, Sarah Granger takes a critical look at what the Internet, social media, and mobile technologies are doing to us, our lives, and our world. A first generation digital native, Sarah shares anecdotes from more than 30 years of observing the evolution of the Internet, expertise from her career in IT and digital media, and extensive research on the impact of these technologies on our daily lives.

While acknowledging the potential costs of our increasingly digital identities, Granger reveals the positive effects—how we learn, grow, and thrive through deeper connections. She takes us on a tour through each layer of our lives, and how to enrich them online: navigating friendships, deepening relationships, teaching kids, exploring passions, building communities, making a difference, managing our time, empowering ourselves, and leaving a legacy.
