Redeeming Technology

I’ve spent a long time advocating for the use of technology in developing countries. I’ve always believed that when used appropriately technology can be a game changer for solving complex issues. Unfortunately, I’ve seen a lot of projects, those with the best intentions, fail horribly due to a lack of understanding about how people use technology. And upon reflecting on my own technology habits, it’s clear to me that we as a society are obsessed with our technology. And obsessed to an unhealthy level. We are just starting to see some of the damage that always-on, always-connected, devices are causing the next generation.

We need help.

Over the next few months, I am going to be exploring a series of posts focused on navigating our obsession with technology and how we can help change our culture of addiction.
