Like yourselves, I’m concerned about the direction society is headed with how we make and utilise technology.
With the help of the Time Well Spent movement I’ve been working on a set of strategies to help improve my own digital wellbeing. I’d love to share these strategies with everyone.
So I’ve setup The 2018 Digital Wellbeing Advent Calendar to give people ideas and practices when using the web, social media and smartphones.
Starting yesterday and up to Xmas, a daily positive strategy will be published about how we can live better with the web, social media and smartphones. There will be tips and tricks ranging from ‘Stop binging on Netflix’ and ‘Taking control of Facebook’ to ‘Improving your sleep hygiene’ and ‘Mindfully staying up-to-date with the news’.
Here is the calendar…
I hope some of you will find these digital lifestyle strategies useful over the next few weeks.
Additionally, I really hope this wakes a few people up to where we’re headed and how they can help themselves.
Very nice! Very on-topic to humane tech, and will certainly raise awareness. I just retweeted and posted to Mastodon too (here).
Note that you can’t really see what has already been unlocked, unless hovering over them with the mouse (even though it is date-bound, but the numbers are in arbitrary sequence).
I don’t know what you intend to do with the information after Christmas, but please consider that this fits well for an attributed re-posting on our community website once that is ready (e.g. first as separate blog posts and then for the long-term in respective categories).
I think ProductHunt needs to have those permissions in order to offer features to people like you who promote their product. And probably to offer upvoters a more limited permission set they have to some special things in their authorization code (uses OAuth).
