Stand out of Our Light

Williams elaborates on this theme in the following talk, analogizing that social media is a denial-of-service attack on our minds.

To combat the negative influence of digital technologies, Williams co-founded the non-profit organization Time Well Spent.

Thanks to Ran Prieur for highlighting Williams's work and riffing on it in his 2017-11-27 and 2017-11-29 posts.

Why no comments? I used to do public comments but found that moderating and maintaining them took too much time in front of the computer, time better spent playing outdoors. So these days I only do private comments, that is, you can email me comments regarding a post by clicking the 'Comment' link at the bottom of the post.
