In this videocast I talk about the social boundary between what's formal and what's informal. The media example I refer to is HBO's new series In Treatment.
The questions I ask are:
1) Why are boundaries so very important?
2) What feeds informality in our day and age and how can it be managed?
3) What happens to privacy in modernity with regards to technology and the web?
4) How can one reconcile one's desire to engage the world with one's desire for privacy?
