Are We Already Cyborgs?



Amber Case, a cyborg anthropologist, makes some interesting observations about our high-tech lifestyle.  She has a different perspective on social networking that I think you’ll appreciate.

Here’s the definition of cyborg that she uses: an organism “to which exogenous components have been added for the purpose of adapting to new environments.”  (Don’t worry, her talk isn’t all technobabble.)

So, after listening to her eight-minute talk, jump into the “technosocial wormhole” and post your comments!

NOTE: You can learn more about the image of the internet she uses near the end of her talk.
