re: What Star Wars Teaches Us About Technology
Good point Marcello. The hard work involved in striking this balance should not be underestimated. We're not Jedis (obviously) but we can learn to feel our own force and use it to get in
shape, curb addiction, control emotions etc. I'm not saying it's easy. We all need some Yoda wisdom and guidance. :) As for kids, I say educate them in schools and at home early and often on how to balance their real and digital identities. Most kids will stare at screens all day if we let them. It's up to parents and teachers to set boundaries and encourage face-to-face social interaction.
