DIGITAL NUTRITION: Staying human (and sane) in a digital world.
Imagine apps and games came with nutritional labels to help us understand the #virtualvitamins we consume when we download and login to them. What would it be like to have a relationship with our devices and online world which was sustainable and added to our wellbeing, sense of connectedness and purpose (without the time-sucking distractions)? We'll explore ways of thinking positively about the place of tech & digital platforms in our personal and professional lives and how we can maintain our humanity in a robotic, big data future.
