Can You Buy a Bagel With it?May 31, 2018
We visit the Berkshires, in western Massachusetts, to see what a local currency, the BerkShare, can teach us about the value of alternative currencies.
Tech promised us more productivity and better lives. Now, it seems impossible to stop looking at our screens. On the latest Ideas Podcast, we explore the unexpected market that’s arisen to fight distraction.
In this episode of the Ideas podcast, we’re diving deep into the solutions-to-digital-distraction market. We talk to Suze Yalof-Schwartz, the founder of Unplug, a meditation app that helps people, well, unplug from technology by plugging in. Manoush Zomorodi, a technology journalist, shows us that the way we interact with our screens now might change how our kids will interact with each other. And Louella San Juan, a Managing Director and the Global Head of Client Technologies at Morgan Stanley, takes us to what she believes is the root of our unending dependence on technology: the ubiquity of the smartphone.
