This month, WIN is pleased to present:
Chris Dancy, the most connected human on earth, presenting
‘Becoming a Mindful Cyborg’
Chris asks us, ‘What if we designed applications that worry less about “where you are” and more about “how you are?” The internet has been engineered to steal our attention and take us away from our present moment. Where does Buddhism and mindfulness meet technology and how can we reclaim our sense of safety in ephemeral society? Chris encourages us to take a look at how we connect with technology and how we can use it to ground ourselves and connect to a deeper sense of purpose.
With this keynote, Chris will help us discover the five ways we can filter information and the three keys that will help us return that as wisdom to consumers. He also talks about how companies can design software and services to support a gentler kinder world. And finally, when is being distracted good for everyone in your life.
