It was 5:37 am on Sunday morning and I was doing the usual - working and preparing for a busy week ahead. As I checked a great source of content @BrianSolis and slurped down a Cafe Latte I uncovered another kindred spirit. God I love the Internet.
In one of Brian's latest Revolution posts (no I didn't steal the term from him) he shared an interview with Tiffany Shlain on her latest film Connected . Please watch the trailer below, (the film is in theaters in the Bay Area now and opening in LA (9/30), NYC (10/14) and across the country. The "Autoblogography about Love, Death & Technology" explores what it means to be connected in the 21st century.

In my lastest presentation on technologies impact on the future of the fitness industry, I shared the 2010 google zeitgeist video and asked the question of the audience - is technology changing our culture - bringing humanity together or not ? Would the world be worse off without the Internet ?
Technology is changing culture, whether for good or bad. More importantly, it is helping humanity, I believe, become more aware of its interdependence. Have YOU snuck off to the bathroom to read your emails lately ?
This is what Tiffany is trying to share and more in her film Connected. I really love the trailer and look forward to seeing the film and want to personally thank @tiffanyshlain for reaching out and "connecting" with me during her film promotion - she is a smart and creative lady.
Tell me, Bryan O'Rourke, what do you think about humanity and technology ? Do you think we are becoming more or less connected and why ? I'd love to hear your view.
