Hey Adam,

It feels like there has been so much written about phones lately. I have been sitting with my thoughts for a while and decided to let them go.

Would love any thoughts. Really feel like I am missing something or maybe it is just complicated.

  1. Nice, I think it is complicated and needs much more critical thought. Much more than I am able to !
    However I think some key points.

    as Augmented humans (via phones) are we β€œbetter” equipped to perform tasks
    Consumption led Culture is this a β€œbad” thing
    Our own relationships with our Cyborg parts can this be damaging ?
    the world seems to be currently in a mode of the Attention Economy and self centred views (trump, brexit, alt-right) this bears on the above as well

    Its a lot of ethical considerations which probably means overall augmenting ourselves with tech is a good thing but we need to think seriously about our own use’s and that this is still a primitive age for said tech, which often has consequences we didn’t foresee.

    More food for thought than anything.
