Presentation: Digital Distraction – Optimizing Human-ness

In a time when we are constantly connected yet isolated, searching for meaning yet distracted from our task, it becomes increasingly important to consciously cultivate an awareness of how our use of technology is affecting us.

Expectations of speed, availability, and increased output are impacting our ability to truly innovate. As our expectations require us to act increasingly machine-like (analytical, logical, information-centered), our abilities to empathize, play, understand nuance, create beauty, and synthesize the big picture are at risk of being lost.

We’ll explore ways of remaining conscious to this effect, and liberating ourselves from the poor inner habits our devices encourage.
