Humaning 102: An Interintellect Special with Maggie Appleton and Aaron Lewis

Fellow Interintellects Maggie Appleton - a cultural anthropologist, designer and leading "digital gardener" - and Aaron Lewis - a popular blogger, designer and internet theorist - join Interintellect founder Anna Gát to talk about a new aspect of humaning - being a human on the internet.

Together we discussed time, memory, and our sense of self in a chaotic 21st century we spend immersed in digital environments, while the lines between "online" and "offline" are slowly but surely blurring into nothing…

Can we use the key findings of anthropology and media theory to help us make sense of these new realms - as fragmented and tribal as our ancestors’ in prehistoric eras yet pushing us swiftly into unprecedented futures?
