Intimacy Through Different Platforms
Stefana Broadbent Keynotes - Stefana Broadbent's keynotes take on culture as we know it and contrast it with how we understand it...
Communication forms like IM, text, Skype, Facebook, and phone calls, allow people to cross global boundaries, which enables them to have intimate relationships despite distance. People are constantly sending messages to loved ones or friends, which Broadbent believes is a great and healthy thing. She thinks that institutions and workplaces that don't allow for this are actually blocking a greater sense of intimacy and she thinks that this shouldn't be allowed.
This communication keynote is an interesting speech on the debate over technology's effect over communication.
