Contactless bank cards have been around for a while, but I’ve never wanted one – until last weekend.
We recently celebrated our 7th anniversary, a moment that traditionally provides an opportunity to totally freak out about how much has happened, and what has changed and continues to change. In this post, I wanted to share one of the most exciting changes we’re making here at Made by Many with a wider audience – not least because it addresses a problem that I believe anyone trying to create sustainable value through digital products will recognise.
Great news: there is a new way to waste time, a brand new shiny distraction to help us lose thousands of hours of our lives, hours that we will never, ever, ever, ever reclaim.
A small team from Made by Many is on a very special mission this week: we’re at TED 2014 in Vancouver and TED Active in Whistler to unveil one of the most extraordinary projects we’ve ever worked on.
I used to think people who complained about digital overload and distraction were simply weaklings. There was a time when I looked forward to swapping my eyes and hands for servo-driven connected gadgets. Not any more: I now find myself fantasising about living in a world without mobiles or internet, or Twitter, or Instagram. I dream of a year away even from electricity. Spending a year off the grid in the the twenty-first century would be my personal definition of ultimate luxury.
