“Digital Humanism” at the Samsung Keynote at CES

Uh oh. It appears that *digital humanism* has arrived and it wasn’t in an MLA keynote, but one at CES, where Samsung’s president B. K. Yoon asked yesterday afternoon:

> How can we take digital humanism a step further? How do we envision the future of our digital devices? These are the questions I struggle with on a daily basis … Digital humanism is adding emotional value to digital technology.

Later in the presentation, Yoon noted:

> We are committed to Human Digitalism. We are committed to putting human life at the center of everything we do.

And the video behind him had the same sequence. Did he mean that the first time instead of “digital humanism”? Are they the same thing?

[Engadget has complete coverage](http://www.engadget.com/2011/01/06/live-from-samsungs-ces-2011-keynote/) but my advice is to click on “sort oldest first” so you can read their coverage in chronological order. I don’t know that it will make any more sense that way.
