The word “glitch” is rarely used to describe human behaviour and is commonly thought of in terms of technology. I find it interesting that although we see our technology as glitchy, the ultimate glitch might be the ways in which technology affects us (whether it be our social behaviours, our connections to our environment, etc). Does our excessive use of, or even addiction to, technology create a disconnection, or alienation, from ourselves, our environment, and each other?
