Research confirms that individuals increasingly live their lives in media. Multitasking between computer, mobile, i-pod and other media, twittering while checking emails and social networks: it is our second nature. Time, according to celebrated speaker and scholar Mark Deuze, to abandon wondering whether being constantly online is good or bad for us, and explore how to accept it as part of our environment - like the air we breathe or the food we eat. If live in rather than with media, what does this mean for how we (can) live our lives? Join Indiana University Professor Mark Deuze in exploring the empty space between man and machine. Find out what it means if we accept that media are to us like water is to fish.
