William Powers - Hamlet's Blackberry

Tuesday, July 20, 2010 - 7:00pm to 8:00pm
As technology plays an ever-greater role in our lives, Powers, former Washington Post writer and fellow of Harvard’s Shorenstein Center, argues that we need to balance the benefits of being connected with deliberate awareness of being disconnected. To manage the distractions of the age of Digital Maximalism, Powers looks back to the great thinkers, finding in Plato, Shakespeare, Emerson, and others ideas that cut through today’s incessant buzz.
