Using technology intentionally
I'm with you on this. I think we would all benefit from "dumber" phones, from being on social media less (or not at all), but these things at their face value are not inherently good. Rather, as James K.A. Smith says time and time again, "You are what you love." And if our absence from these sites doesn't deal with the core issues, if they make us into proud and boisterous people, then what are we gaining in the end?
