Does being connected cost us our humanity? | Chris Dancy | TEDxVienna
With our lives digitized, connected and stored, are we losing personal growth and perspective? Everything is connected via time, identity and ownership forcing people into the cult of the busy and the soul sucking void of the relentless now. What humanity enhancing lessons could be learned from the hyper personalized world? Chris Dancy, Data Exhaust Cartographer, utilizes up to 700 sensors, devices, applications, and services to track, analyze, and optimize as many areas of his existence. This quantification enables him to see the connections of otherwise invisible data, resulting in dramatic upgrades to his health, productivity, and quality of life.
