A world in which technology enhances our lives, not our screen time

This Panda Is Dancing from Max Stossel on Vimeo.

Whether it’s work, social media, a game or our Netflix account, much of our time and attention is spent on a screen. But filmmaker Max Stossel suggests that technology doesn’t have to be this way.

What if news & media companies were creating content that enriched our lives, vs. catering to our most base instincts for clicks?

What if social platforms were designed to help us create our ideal social lives, instead of to maximize time-on-site and “likes”?

What if dating apps measured their success in how well they helped us find what we’re looking for instead of in # of swipes?

As technology gets more and more engaging, and as AI and VR become more and more prevalent in our day-to-day lives, we need to take a look at how we’re structuring our future.

In this witty and all-too-true short film, Max asks the question of what might be possible if the digital world was constructed to truly enrich our lives and not just increase our screen time.
