Video of the Week: "It's not you. Phones are designed to be addicting."

I've been thinking a lot about phone addiction lately. When this came up in my YouTube feed this week, I was intrigued. 

Here's what I'm thinking about: 

  • Do you believe that phone designers are manipulating you to be addicted? 
  • Would you be willing to try one or more strategies this week? 
  • Which notifications on your phone have a real person behind them? Which don't? 
  • What do you think about the pull-down feature as a mimic of the slot machine and a feeling of control? 
  • Explore the Center of Humane Technology. What ideas to you agree with? With which do you disagree?
