Hamlet's Blackberry

4-1 HamletsBlackberry_1.jpg

There's a conflict in the era of emails, texts, tweets, tags, pokes and posts. It's our struggle between that desire to be connected and the impulse to be left alone. Media critic William Powers says it's always been this way. Monday, Powers joins Doug to talk about our technological past. His book is about how you master the art of disconnecting. It's called Hamlet's BlackBerry. (Rebroadcast)
