Must read: 'Our Love Affair With Digital Is Over'
Imagine if, instead of software / robots / fake news algorithms destroying the world, we instead experience a slow turn away from the unfulfilled promises of technology, and find ourselves choosing to embrace the analog again.
He's right –– so many of us, while we remain smitten in some ways with technology's possibilities, can no longer ignore the great personal and societal costs that have been wrought by the toxic and often un-human Silicon Valley mindset. A system that values connections to devices more than connections to people deserves to be upended.
We couldn't agree more, and are doing our own work here at Mindful Technology to help both users and builders of technology to make decisions that help us to be more connected to one another. And yes–to David's point, I have personally purchased books, Broadway tickets, and paper notebooks recently. ;)
If you are interested in this stuff, I invite you to join us for the inaugural #mindfultech meetup in NYC on November 30th!
ps I just ordered David Sax''s book, The Revenge of Analog: Real Things and Why They Matter. Can't wait to check it out!
