If babies need more sleep for their developing brains, as studies have confirmed, then do our ever-increasing reliance on email and text messaging have some unforeseen consequences for human evolution? Filmmaker Tiffany Shlain tackles these and other questions at the intersection of technology and humanity in Connected, a sort of investigative documentary and canted memoir which bowed at the Sundance Film Festival earlier this year, and stands poised to release both in theaters and across various multimedia platforms. This isn’t a new topic of interest for Shlain, who years ago launched the honorific Webby Awards, casting a spotlight on some of the best creativity on the Internet. Recently, I had a chance to speak one-on-one to her, about her movie, her legacy with the Webby Awards, and more. The Q&A chat is excerpted over at ShockYa, so click here, and maybe I’ll post some more tidbits next week. For even more about the film, meanwhile, click here.
