Bugeja analyzes the "interpersonal divide" that develops between people who spend too much time in virtual rather than real communities, and makes a case for face-to-face communication in a high-tech world. Using an applied ethics perspective, he assesses the changes resulting from the Technology Revolution of the 1990s and calls for moderation in electronic media consumption. Each chapter concludes with a journal exercise and discussion questions. The author of 18 books, Bugeja teaches journalism and communication at Iowa State University.
