The Power of And: Lauren Bacon at Pecha Kucha Night Vancouver

Humans like to think in either/or terms. We like to think that the real world and the virtual world are separate from each other.

This is complete bullshit, and most of us know that in our heart of hearts, but we work hard to preserve the dichotomies. There's something about them that we're really attached to. It's hard for us to break these binaries down and recognize the infinite facets and complexities that constitute reality.

It's hard for us to move away from "either/or" and embrace the "and". And it's critically important that we do.
