Romance in the Information Age

New Atlantis editor Christine Rosen, actor Johnny Lee  Davenport, and art historian Curt DeCamillo tackle the issue of how our social media and personal technologies influence our emotions.

Friendships and love affairs were once the glorious domain of pen and  paper, where lovers poured out their souls. Now they have become mere  electronic transactions executed and terminated in a few texted taps. Yet we are still hitting poets.org over and over again, in search of  the right words. So what have we lost and gained with digital intimacy?

Do texting and tweeting diminish our emotional communications? Do our gadgets change the way we feel, act, and think?
