The human brain is in trouble and technology is a cause…

A thought-provoking article on how technology has negatively impacted humanity in a profound manner. I have often surmised that the effect is much worse on children raised on technology as their minds physically grow and mature with such harmful artificial stimuli.

“…our constant engagement with technology interferes with the pursuit of other behaviors critical for maintaining a healthy mind, such as nature exposure, physical movement, face-to-face contact, and restorative sleep. Its negative influence on empathy, compassion, cooperation, and social bonding are just beginning to be understood.”

Atari origins

Interesting article discussing the origins of Atari. I remember bringing home my Pong game console purchased from Sears where I worked and playing it with my brother James all night. I am definitely going to read “Valley of Genius: The Uncensored History of Silicon Valley (As Told by the Hackers, Founders, and Freaks Who Made It Boom)” by Adam Fisher when it comes out.
