In his book, "Technomoderation", Dr. Almeida argues that humanity seems to be increasingly more and more numb to the fact that we are becoming more like computers and that too many of us rely on technology for temporary highs or distractions from the real world. He then offers hope that technology can be leveraged against itself to simplify our lives and enhance our human experience. In this episode of The Kinetic we will discuss this new model of human behavior that he's identified, what it is that truly makes us human and how we should hold onto and nurture positive social qualities before ending up mindless tech drones. How does all of this tie into our spiritual walk with Christ? Tune in and find out!
