By 31st March 2016 October 13th, 2016 No Comments

“Digital mindfulness at its essence is your ability to navigate time without judgement or bias.” – Chris Dancy

This week, Digital Mindfulness interviews Chris Dancy, once touted as the “most connected man on earth”, Chris has been featured in Wired, Businessweek and the Wall Street Journal. He is now featured in Showtime’s Dark Net.

For more than 25 years, Chris has been a thought leader at the intersection of technology and healthcare and earned the moniker by connecting more than 700 sensors, devices and applications to track and optmise every element of his life. It was this quantification that helped Chris to see other information that was otherwise invisible to him and to dramatically improve the quality of his life.

In this episode you’ll learn:

  • What a quantified life reveals to us about our lives and society
  • Joblessness in the age of digital automation
  • How technology is a reflection of ourselves and not separate
