Argu[ing] that the problem with social media is that people are trading the rich, physical and real nature of face-to face contact for the digital, virtual and trivial quality…stems from the systematic bias to see the digital and physical as separate; often as a zero-sum tradeoff where time and energy spent on one subtracts from the other. This is digital dualism par excellence. And it is a fallacy.
I am proposing an alternative view that states that our reality is both technological and organic, both digital and physical, all at once. We are not crossing in and out of separate digital and physical realities [we] instead live in one reality, one that is augmented by atoms and bits.
