ZEN & TECH 62: How to survive a breakup


Really cutting edge territory here in dealing with the more human issues and how tech can impact/influence our behaviors. I didn't feel like this episode particularly had a strong foot in the tech side of things, but I feel it's extremely pertinent none the less because humans and their emotional behaviors haven't changed since... well, since we've been here!
Rene & Georgia as a team on Zen & Tech is extremely Zen - Yin & Yang - Rene is so full of uncontrollable energy and he's always interjecting his thoughts as the burst into his mind (the only way he & I might be any more alike were if he were constantly fidgeting!); while Georgia, on the other hand, is rather calm, slower spoken, and brings a respite of balance into the conversation.
[bows respectfully]
I see Georgia has swayed Rene to the light side of the force while he is in her podcast realm of tranquility.
Although I am not in need of this advice, it is food for thought in how I may one day have to help my children deal with such inevitable issues.
Thank you!

I have to say that I am floored by such a thoughtful and caring response. I don't really feel that I am deserving but I can say that I am honoured. Thank you so much, your words are always positive and helpful. Very humbly Georgia

I love this guys. I feel like this needs to be watched by everyone and have "the other person" be replaced by their iPhone/iPad or Android device, because damn it's hard breaking up with an eco system.
