"Today’s tech platforms are caught in a race to the bottom of the brain stem to extract human attention. It's a race we're all losing. The result: addiction, social isolation, outrage, misinformation, and political polarization.

These aren't disconnected issues. They are part of human downgrading.

While companies have been upgrading technology, they’ve been downgrading humans:

  • Shortening attention spans
  • Rewarding outrage over dialogue
  • Addicting children
  • Polarizing the democratic process
  • Turning life into a competition for likes and shares

This new generation of technology will compete to:

  • Help us focus
  • Build common ground
  • Support democracy
  • Protect the development of kids
  • Align our lives with our values
