i bought some stickers from my friend void rabbit. i also have a couple of interesting artists ive stumbled across over the past couple weeks.
this past week i read cal newport's digital minimalism, published in 2019. as someone whos been teetering around the edges of this concept for a while without having for it a concrete name, this book was a pleasure to read and affirmed many things ive been thinking about for a while. particularly, the evidence provided that my sort of age group (early 20s) who can remember life without social media and smartphones, have had our mental health and development stunted by it as it grew up alongside us.
in this book, newport proposes the idea that individuals needs to develop an intentional philosophy around their use of technology for us to be able to benefit from it, rather than let it benefit from us. newport lays out a clear guide on how to achieve this while supporting the idea with various testimonies, history, studies, his own personal experiments, and other enlightening research pulling from places you might not expect - such as the life of abraham lincoln or how the amish live. i recommend the read, no matter what stage of your relationship you're at with your technology.
upd8 29/08/21: ive decided to follow newport's advice to put myself through a 30 day digital declutter - u can read about this here.
