Letter from the editor – 46.23

To the amazing ML/LD community,


Another week of big tech in court with some interesting developments in that it appears (for now) that big tech depsite trying to get the lawsuit thrown out may have to answer some pretty curly questions around the techniques they used to addict users.

An interesting discussion has also emerged in a school community that banned mobile phones and found some great results, but also some pushback from students that feel less safe and connected.

We have always advocated that an overall ban of devices is not the end game here, rather finding the balance that works (and perhaps the companies that design the software pulling back on the addictive features).


Thanks for being a subscriber, your subscription alone helps the More Life Less Device mission move forward every day.

And we fully get the irony that you are reading this on a device, We stand firmly as advocates of technology, believing that it can enrich our lives when approached with balance and intention. Our goal is to minimise the adverse effects of device overuse while celebrating technology’s immense potential.
