Here’s Why Human Face-to-Face Conversations Are So Important
Sherry Turkle, Director of the MIT Initiative of Technology and Self, explains why time away from technology is so important to our personal relationships.

Yet, face-to-face conversation is where empathy and intimacy grow. To have the best relationships, there must be time away from screens and a sacred space for real human interaction.
