"Our Virtual Shadow" TED Book Discussion

Damon Brown

We’ve become a world of infinite status updates, constant tweeting, and compulsive pinning—behavior that can put documenting our lives at odds with actually living. We blame technology, but our need to capture time didn’t start with Instagram. Join journalist and entrepreneur Damon Brown in an intimate chat about his TED Book “Our Virtual Shadow: Why We Are Obsessed with Documenting Our Lives Online.” It is a deep dive into a title The Washington Post said will “make you smarter.”
