Time Well Spent

Happy Friday, everyone!

Just a brief post today, and then the weekend begins! If you have 15 minutes, watch this video on mindfulness. Why? In a nutshell, because it's inspirational and positive and I honestly believe that using technology can make, in the words of Tristan Harris, a "net-positive contribution to human life."

What's that you say? Why wouldn't it?

Well, I challenge you: Why would it?

It's important to remember that machines are very literal and will only do what we ask them to do. If we think to program them with features that "Improve Humanity!", they will! And if we consciously decide to measure the successes of our IoT technology in how positively they impact human life, that is exactly what they will do.

Think about the things in this video for your family, your company, and your soul. Do it because, whether we know it or not, whether we feel ready or not, we are setting the foundation a machine-integrated, IoT-enabled, technologically-advanced future that we and our children will have to live in.

It's fun and exciting, and at least for me, a little bit daunting because, let's face it, it's a big responsibility. Let's be ready!
