On Life, On­line

Where Vancouver - - Entertainment -

Do you have friends on Face­book? Ac­quain­tances on In­sta­gram? Whether you em­brace or avoid the In­ter­net, there’s no es­cap­ing it—dig­i­tal com­mu­ni­ca­tion is the new norm for hu­man in­ter­ac­tion. We can keep up with world events, Skype our fam­i­lies and text our friends any time, from any­where. So why are we still lonely? Find out at the world pre­miere of Hyperlink (Oct. 4 to 14; page 58), when two ac­claimed sto­ry­tellers take au­di­ences on a lively tour of a life spent on­line. Spoiler alert: it’s not all retweets and “likes.”
