The past two decades brought personal computers into our offices and then into our homes. The past few years put smartphones in our pockets, and the Internet always and everywhere at our fingertips. This rapid adoption of highly responsive and interconnected technologies marks an unprecedented change in human behavior, leaving no aspect of our lives untouched. And the pace of technological change is only increasing.
Gadget Rules is a growing collection of wisdom about using technology in ways that best serve our bodies, our minds, and each other. In an era of breathtaking technological change, Gadget Rules is a reminder to breathe.
How do I use technology in a healthy manner?
How do I use technology consciously?
Gadget Rules borrows its form from Michael Pollan’s Food Rules, an “eater’s manual” brimming with food wisdom, that improves the diets and lives of those who read it.
