Cal Newport isn’t on Twitter, Facebook, Instagram, or any other social media platform—and for good reason. An associate professor of computer science at Georgetown University, Cal has spent a lot of time studying and writing about how humans interact with technology. He’s the author of six books, including Deep Work, So Good They Can't Ignore You, and his latest, appropriately titled Digital Minimalism.
In this episode, Cal explains how social media has become more and more addictive and how this fragments our attention to make real concentration increasingly difficult. Listen in to learn the benefits of digital minimalism, how to draw the line between beneficial online activities and those that have a negative impact, and what you can do to give yourself a digital detox.
