For the last few years I’ve been considering the assumption that using tech tools, specifically social media, increases the quality of life.  This rabbit hole led me to a former student of mine, Tristan Harris. His TED talk points out how the tech he helped create hijacks our brains. 

So I went to the Center for Humane Technology and have made a few practical adjustments. First, I’ve switched my phone to Grayscale (Not a huge deal as I’ve been using F.Lux for a few years). Additionally, I’m using Moment to see exactly where the time spent on the phone goes. Last, I’m deleting IG and FB from my phone this upcoming weekend and taking at least 30 days off of them completely to see subjectively how I feel? and objectively what happens to the time I spend on the phone (measured by Moment)? If anybody wants to join or is curious please hit me up in person or by email.
