SXSW 2018

Mindful Technology


Staying connected does matter–but to each other, not our devices. Instead of views & attention grabs, let’s design for purpose, calm & compassion. Instead of engagement with interfaces, let’s design to engage with what we truly care about. Instead of simply building more tech, let’s build more human connection. With a host of practical examples, Liza Kindred shares a framework for how we can make & use new technologies that create real insight, joy, and utility–while still getting the job done.
