Sue Thomas defines technobiophilia is the innate attraction to life or lifelike processes as they appear in technology. I think this is a common trait that everybody has. Technology has allowed as to get an idea of an experience without actually experiencing it. In a way it allows a lot of different people to have their input in an experience. But it also allows people to build on their experiences. For example, as we discussed in class people can use others creation to create new experiences. In her lecture Sue Thomas discussed how people helped her translate a slide in Chinese; this is another example of someone using their experiences to create a new experience for someone in this case Sue Thomas. I agree that technobiophilia does help people manage their interactions online but I am skeptical that it alleviates mental fatigue.
