IQ2Oz — We are becoming enslaved by our technology

12 August 2014, Sydney.

I was asked to pass this around in case anyone was interested in attending. There are some interesting speakers in the lineup — on both sides!

I asked my phone if I was enslaved and it said I wasn’t. Then it told me to respond to 3 notifications, to leave work in 7 minutes, and that I’d eaten too much and hadn’t taken enough steps today.

Sharpened rocks and fire will be the death of us.

We have been relying on tools for over quarter of a million years, nothing has changed in that regard.
