" In contrast, screens can be the very way that we, as a society, stop pathologizing difference and instead broaden how and with whom we communicate. Screens offer a chance to question the value of “typical” thinking and, in turn, discover the richness of the human mind in all its varied forms."
"While it is true that communication media shape how people engage with one another and with the social world, a medium is not valuable or detrimental in its own right but more or less helpful and appropriate depending on circumstances. These tech critics begin with the concern that humanity suffers from the loss of an ideal communicative form — face-to-face interaction — and fail to ask the sociological question: Ideal for whom, and under what conditions? By doing so, the dominant tech critique overlooks entirely those people for whom face-to-face communication creates obstacles to interaction and for whom digital media is socially beneficial."
