Amber Case: Technology has reversed the isolation we experienced from the Industrial RevolutionS

Core77 has a nice interview with "cyborg anthropoloigst" Amber Case, who claims that "Good technology should make you superhuman." She makes an interesting case (no pun intended) that the Industrial Revolution disconnected people from each other, when "everyone was distributed by highways and cars and stretched out into the suburbs." But now, newer technology has "stitched all of that reality together so that you no longer have to worry about being geographically separate. It's giving us back a tremendous part of our humanity." The whole thing is worth checking out. [Core77]
