That was the title of this TED Talk below when it showed up in my iTunes. For some reason it was renamed on the TED site, maybe the tech companies complained :)
It's a great talk in the sense that it is something we should all know, and it should impact what we all do. Eventually I'll have some reference to this topic on my other pages.
If you want more on this topic there is a TED playlist to inspire you to unplug.
If you're more of a book person check out Irresistible: The rise of addictive technology and the business of keeping us hooked, by Adam Alter.
But don't forget to put your phone down this weekend and enjoy the last long weekend of the summer :)
