A lifestyle characterized by the comprehension of the technologies and digital services

Liberation Technology - “Liberationtech”
Liberation Technology at Stanford's Center
on Democracy, Development, and the Rule
of Law seeks to understand how
information technology can be used to
improve governance, empower the poor,
defend human rights, promote economic
development, and pursue a variety of other
social goods.
63
Alexander Steinhart - How to stay Human in the Digital?
Calm Technology/Computing
Technology should be designed to be a
tool and operate in the background
without taking a toll on people’s attention.
Technology should require the smallest
amount of our attention, it should inform,
and should be designed for people first.
Mark Weiser, John Seeley Brown
Technology shouldn't require all of our
attention, just some of it, and only when
necessary.
Amber Case
64
Alexander Steinhart - How to stay Human in the Digital?
Positive Computing/Technology/Design
Positive Computing is the design and
development of technology to support
psychological well-being and human
potential.
Rafael A. Calvo, Dorian Peters
Positive Design is technology that supports,
rather than exploits, our irrational, emotional
selves.
Pamela Pavliscak
65
Alexander Steinhart - How to stay Human in the Digital?
Design for Time Well Spent
Technology that cares about helping us
spend our time, and our lives, well – not
seducing us into the most screen time,
always-on interruptions or distractions.
Tristan Harris
66
Alexander Steinhart - How to stay Human in the Digital?
Slow Design
Slow Design is a branch of the Slow
Movement, which began with the concept
of Slow Food, a term coined in contrast to
fast food. As with every branch of the
Slow Movement, the overarching goal of
Slow Design is to promote well being for
individuals, society, and the natural
environment.
67
Alexander Steinhart - How to stay Human in the Digital?
Post-Tech / Postdigital
Post-tech (or post-technology, post-digital-
technology) describes technology that has as
centre the human and supports directly our focus
and intend, well-being and independence (from
technology) instead of exploiting us, increasing
mere efficacy and time spent with digital devices
and technology only.
Alexander Steinhart/OFFTIME
Postdigital is a term in the discourse of digital
artistic practice. This term points significantly to our
rapidly changed and changing relationships with
digital technologies and art forms. It points to an
attitude that is more concerned with being human,
than with being digital.
Ian Andrews, Kim Cascone

It points to an attitude that is more concerned with being human, than with being digital. Ian Andrews, Kim Cascone 68 Alexander Steinhart - How to stay Human in the Digital?
