  17. 17. Byron Reeves Media Psychologist Stanford University "To view three hours of content, on average, I am turning that phone on and off 300 times a day…” "If you put software on laptop computers and smartphones to measure how long they spent with any given segment of life that they intend to do -- how long they wrote their paper, how long they watch a news story -- it's about ten seconds."

  19. 19. “If you want to maximize addictiveness, all tech designers need to do is link a user’s action (like pulling a lever) with a variable reward. You pull a lever and immediately receive either an enticing reward 
 (a match, a prize!) or nothing. Addictiveness is maximized when the rate of reward is most variable.” Tristan 
 Harris Founder Centre for Humane Technology Formerly of Apple, Wikia, Apture, Google

  20. 20. “ Lonely queries “Did I just get an alert!” “What’s under this red notification?” “Let me refresh…” “Who liked my stuff?” “Do people agree with me?”
  21. 21. Justin Rosenstein Co-Founder of Asana Co-creator of the Like Button (Facebook) I think it's very dangerous right now to have a business model in which the way that these companies make money is by selling people's attention to advertisers… Regardless of whether they have good or bad intentions, the financial incentives just lean you more and more toward trying to get people to stare at their phones.

  30. 30. “Personal assistants are artificial intelligences… they’re supposed to wake us up in the morning and guide us through our day. The role that machines play, is to learn our habits,

  31. 31. “The very nature of us a species 
 is transformed.” 
 “We’re not far from the day when these

  39. 39. "What becomes important to us is the next new thing that comes along in a matter of seconds; that's what grabs our attention. And not only do we begin to ignore the need to think deeply and quietly and contemplatively about things, but we begin to see that as a waste of time, because it stops you from grabbing the next new bit 
 of information.” Nicholas Carr Author, Is google making us stoopid The Shallows: What the Internet is doing to our brains The Glass Cage: How our computers are changing us

  50. 50. John McWHorter Linguist, Columbia University “What texting is, despite the fact that it involves the brute mechanics of something that we call writing, is fingered speech. That's what texting is. Now we can write the way we talk.”

  52. 52. "Our research shows that capturing digital behavior patterns, such as tweets, Facebook likes or web browser logs, is sufficient to be able to build up a detailed picture of an individual's personality, intelligence or political leanings. These types of Big Data analysis do not require any active participation on the part of the data subjects." Michael Kosinski Psychometrics Expert Stanford University

  57. 57. “Right at the time when smart phones became popular (2012)… that’s exactly when loneliness among teens started to spike; symptoms of depression, suicide related outcomes, happiness started to go down, life satisfaction started to go down, right at that time when they were spending a lot more time on their phones and a lot less time with one another in person.” Jean Twenge Professor of Psychology San Diego State University
  58. 58. "Anything that's done with a screen: texting, social media, TV, online, computer games – all of those are correlated with lower happiness," Jean Twenge Professor of Psychology San Diego State University
