Mobile devices and the web have invaded our lives. We've all found ourselves checking email at the dinner table, holding our breath while waiting for Outlook to load, or sitting hunched in front of a screen for an hour longer than we intended. Alex Soojung-Kim Pang, a renowned Stanford technology guru, addresses one of the biggest questions of our age: can we stay connected without diminishing our intelligence, attention spans, and ability to really live? Dr. Pang says yes and will share how it is possible to tune in without tuning out.
