On an upcoming episode of Spark, we're going to explore the short bursts of information that seem to be so popular these days. What is it about the brevity of Twitter or Facebook status messages that's so appealing? In other words, are human beings wired for bite-sized communication?
To talk about this, Nora interviewed Hannu Ripatti. Hannu is a designer based in Helsinki, Finland, and he's one of the creators of IOBR, a social media device for toddlers.
A shorter version of this interview will air on Spark 135, but you can hear the full, uncut interview below, or download the MP3. [runs 10:28]
