@Bubu 20 years of has had an impact, but I think we can pretty quickly turn things around if we consciously design for aiding us, rather than addicting us

I installed T-UI (Terminal based launcher - f-droid.org/app/ohi.andre.cons ) today and it instantly eliminated all check emails, check mastodon, check all messenger, check emails again habits.

I guess it's more because of the unfamiliarity of the interface than any inherent benefit to it. Let's see how this will go. Maybe I'll just have to keep changing my phone UX radically every few months.

Interesting to see that civilisation does not need to be built on rich and poor in rigid hierachies.Teotihuacan in Mexico thrived for 5 centuries without slaves, slums, or even big differences between rich and poor. This is in contrast to Rome, Egypt, Mycenae, Greece, Babylon, etc.

We must stop it!

I've been thinking a lot recently about the addictiveness of media, particularly of software. When users are the product, then is inevitable: such companies need to make users present on their platform as much as possible to make more money.

We as a society have forgotten that computers were invented to augment human intelligence, not turn us all into addicts.

Just the fear of #surveillance can turn us into self-censors and stop us from exercising intellectual freedom and curiosity.

If we think we're being watched, our behavior changes.
