Here is a sneak peek of the podcast:
Q: Which is the myth—is technology creates social isolation, technology helps divide social isolation?
“When you look at people my age, we would rather have meetings/gatherings physically, na magsasama-sama kami. But at the same time, during the pandemic, we realized that it’s not possible, and that social media can be an avenue, in which we can actually interact with each other. And because the context, of that situation—of the pandemic—we saw na social media isn’t really that toxic. Technology isn’t really that toxic. When you have the right mindset, and the right motivation on how you use it.”—Izrie Phileo Pagala
“It’s not about technology itself, but how people use technology, kung nagke-create siya ng isolation or not—because technology in the first place was invented to connect people, make communication an easier thing. ‘Di nga siya chicken-or-egg question. It’s neither, it’s contextual.”—Ellinor Galang
