"[00:07:25] "...I think that the wisdom around the day of rest is that you need to separate work and rest. And the interesting thing about technology is that it blurred every boundary. You could work from the beach, you could work from your bedroom, you could work from anywhere, which, of course, you know, has had its benefits." "[00:40:59] "...I think that the more women that are funding projects, the more women that are leading and the more women that are creating environments. So women can be mothers and in the workforce, the better. But I feel very hopeful." HIGHLIGHTS OF THE SHOW: [00:00:29] GUEST INTRODUCTION [00:02:46] What is the story behind your hat and red lipstick? [00:05:05] What is the Shabbat? [00:13:39] Why is it that having this day of rest allows the human mind to do this big picture thinking that allows us to drive our culture and our civilization forward? [00:27:46] How are algorithms manipulating our animal instincts? [00:36:57] How are their algorithms impacting that development and refinement of these muscles in ourselves? [00:40:28] How can we make sure that this current generation of women in tech don't go through those same struggles? [00:43:55] RANDOM ROUND [00:43:59] What is your favorite song to play on the ukulele? [00:44:18] When do you think the first video to hit one trillion views on YouTube will happen?

Sherry Turkle and Tiffany Shlain: Empathy in the Technology Age

Commonwealth Club of California Podcast

American life is dominated by machines: our computers, our televisions, our phones. This has been especially true over the past year as technology kept us connected—to our jobs, our friends, our families, even our doctors. But, as the country sees the light at the end of the tunnel of the pandemic, what now? What has our reliance on technology done to us for not only the past year, but for the past decade (or longer)?Two authors, Sherry Turkle and Tiffany Shlain, will use the occasion of the publications of Turkle's new book (The Empathy Diaries: A Memoir) and the paperback version of Shlain's book (24/6: Giving up Screens One Day a Week to Get More Time, Creativity, and Connection) to have an intimate and timely discussion on the urgent need to reclaim humanity and empathy in this technological age.Turke's latest book illuminates our present search for authentic connection in a time of uncharted challenges. Her book ties together her coming-of-age and her pathbreaking research on technology, empathy and ethics. Growing up in postwar Brooklyn, Turkle searched for clues to her identity in a house filled with mysteries. She mastered the codes that governed her mother’s secretive life. She learned never to ask about her absent scientist father—and never to use his name, her name. Before empathy became a way to find connection, it was her strategy for survival.Shlain's book recounts the efforts she and her family have made to gain more time, productivity, connection and presence in their lives by giving up screens for one day a week. Her book takes readers on a thought-provoking and entertaining journey through time and technology, introducing a strategy for flourishing in our 24/7 world. Drawn from the ancient ritual of Shabbat, she says that living 24/6 can work for anyone from any background. With humor and wisdom, Shlain shares her story, offering the accessible lessons she has learned and providing a blueprint for how to do it yourself.Please join for this special event about the critical need to reclaim our lives from technology.SPEAKERSSherry TurkleAuthor, The Empathy Diaries: A MemoirTiffany ShlainAuthor, 24/6: Giving up Screens One Day a Week to Get More Time, Creativity, and ConnectionIn response to the COVID-19 pandemic, we are currently hosting all of our live programming via YouTube live stream.
