boredom is very 2015


NEW TECH CITY is a podcast about how technology is making our lives better and worse hosted by WNYC’s Manoush Zomorodi.  I am going to take the challenge by downloading the app MOMENT that tracks your phone use and lets you see in real scary time how much of your day your spend on your phone.

  1. I really need to disconnect from my smartphone in 2015.
  2. I need/want more time to daydream.
  3. Here’s the podcast that inspired me.

This is a truly scary discovery from the research: “The average mobile consumer checks their device 150 times a day, and 67 percent of the time, that’s not because it rang or vibrated.”

“Studies suggest that we get our most original ideas when we stop the constant stimulation and let ourselves get bored.”  —Manoush Zomorodi
