What has been the impact of digital technologies on the development of today’s youth? And how has the digital world changed the way we see ourselves and relate to each other? In Ctrl Alt Delete: How I Grew Up Online, blogger, author and digital consultant Emma Gannon shares her experiences of coming of age, living and working in the digital era. Gannon enfolds illuminating facts and figures into her engaging and relatable personal memoir to examine both the risks and opportunities afforded by digital technologies, writes Emma Wilson. On Saturday 25 February, Emma Gannon will be speaking alongside Rachel Coldicutt and Deana Puccio as part of the LSE Space for Thought Literary Festival 2017. ‘Growing Up Online: A Digital Revolution?’ explores the risks and benefits for young people growing up in cyberspace; tickets are free and available here.
