I agree with some of the things in the article on some forms of communication best kept face-to-face or somewhat more personal. Of course, technology can still be effective for some forms of communication but when a deeper level of communication is required, this might not suffice until it takes on a multi-platform and alternative approach.
With modern technology or not so modern now, we tend to rely on communication over devices which can sometimes not fully express what and how one feels. This, I feel is inadequate in maintaining a quality communication between various forms of relationships. What happened to intimacy? What is wrong with wishing for a deeper relationship?
This is why I feel we should reach a high state of consciousness to do without the need for all these low-level human need for communication and intimacy of thoughts.
