A Regenerative Future with Matt Powers
These Devices Are Divisive... For A Simple Reason | Morning Thoughts with Matt

A Regenerative Future with Matt Powers

It's early morning here when I recorded this but I had to put my thoughts into words and share them: We had such high hopes for this technology especially for education but something changed along the way. There was a shift from connection and empowerment to divide and conquer, from expression to influence, from choice to dictation. Somewhere along the way, we lost the original internet, and now we all exist moslty in silos, many of us arguing about the world we see through our devices as they are quite divergent from each others. When people don't share a common perception of the world, it naturally creates conflict, fear, division, and distrust. Interestingly, this is why online courses can be so energizing and stand in contrast to this tendency: in a group you share and discuss the same experience as you would in real life, overcoming to a large degree the division. This is why so many of us have retreated from social media into private courses and communities online: they feel like the internet did 15 years ago! Here's my early morning thoughts on what has happened and what we can do about it as individuals. Let me know what your perspective is on this - that way we can connect, co-create reality, and make the world a better, more stable, and more wonderful place to live. Grow Abundantly, Learn Daily, & Live Regeneratively, Matt Powers

We'll look at a variety of complex issues from a variety of points of view, not necessarily to get to "right answers" but to build empathy and perspective. Today I am joined by Dr. Felicia Su Wong, a cultural sociologist of media and digital technologies, currently serving as professor of sociology at Westmont College in Santa Barbara. We discuss her book, OUT TODAY!, Restless Devices: Recovering Personhood, Presence, and Place in the Digital Age. Our technologies are forming us whether we know it or not, so Felicia and I discuss the importance of intentionality when it comes to our devices. We also discuss ways we can incorporate "counterliturgies" so that we are formed into the person of Christ.

All Shall Be Well: Conversations with Women in the Academy and Beyond

How do digital devices affect our journeys of spiritual formation — and what can we do about that? Join us for this conversation with writer and professor Felicia Wu Song as we discuss digital habits and the grace of establishing soul-shaping practices. "Part of my own journey is wanting to become a different kind of person who can be present to the people in my life." — Felicia Song Let me invite you into a conversation with professor and cultural sociologist Felicia Wu Song, in which we talk about her recent book Restless Devices: Recovering Personhood, Presence, and Place in the Digital Age. Reading this book felt like a real spiritual journey for me with Felicia serving as a gentle guide. She describes the challenges that come with our compulsive use of digital devices, and then leads the reader into spiritual practices that help temper some of the harmful effects and reorient our focus back to connectedness with God and one another. It's a beautiful and courageous and kind book, especially around a topic that could be filled with shoulds and oughts — and Felicia and I talk about why she decided NOT to offer a lot of hard and fast rules about managing digital devices. I loved talking with Felicia and I think you'll enjoy our conversation too.​ So have a listen! We're so glad you're here. — Ann Boyd For show notes or more information please visit our article at The Well.

Couch Talk w/ Dr. Anna Cabeca
Creating Mindful and Resilient Children with Dr. Anna Cabeca and Dr. Madiha Saeed

Couch Talk w/ Dr. Anna Cabeca

Play Episode Listen Later Nov 26, 2021 47:49


Madiha Saeed is on a mission as the Holistic Mom to help children live healthier, happier, more mindful lives. Learn about the inflammation epidemic that is afflicting children today and what we as parents can do to help our children make more rational, healthy decisions by choosing nutrient-rich foods, focusing on gratitude and optimism, and creating a home environment where they can thrive. [0:40] What can we do as parents to raise mindful and resilient children with a combination of functional medicine and parenting? That's the question that Madiha's new book tries to answer. [1:25] Because of widespread chronic inflammation, children are unable to make rational decisions today which are resulting in a number of societal issues. [3:10] Madiha's mission began after seeing her newborn child struggle to simply breathe. She started her journey of self-healing and put those lessons into practice to help her children as well. [5:35] Chronic disease has quadrupled amongst children since the 1960s. Now 1 out of 2 American children has a chronic health condition. By 2025, the projection is that 80% of children will be diagnosed with a chronic health condition. ADHD has increased 167% and by current projections 1 in 4 children will be diagnosed with autism by 2033. [8:35] By understanding the why and the what, we can understand the root cause of suffering, which is that our children are living unbalanced lives. The decisions children make every day are determined by their brain, and studies have shown that inflammation reduces the connection between the prefrontal cortex and amygdala, both of which are needed to make rational decisions. [10:30] During a research study, they found that children with behavioral issues had high levels of key inflammatory markers. Inflammation can impact babies in the womb. Society lives unbalanced lives and the chronic inflammation that comes as a result is passed from mother to child. [12:30] Endocrine disruptors have been found to be closely linked to inflammation, hormone imbalances, and gender confusion that we are seeing now. Medications that were commonly prescribed to pregnant women in the past decades are being found to have multi-generational impacts and increased suffering. [16:10] There are thousands of chemicals that are released on a regular basis and we have no idea what their long-term impacts are. BPA is a common culprit that is found in most plastics, including baby bottles. [18:00] We need to be more mindful of what is going into our children's bodies and what they are wearing. As parents, we need to empower our children to make positive changes to their daily lifestyles and improve the future. [21:00] Our consumer choices matter. Science has proven that gratitude and optimism strengthen the link between the prefrontal cortex and the amygdala and improves overall health and wellbeing. [22:15] When a child has a chronic health condition, it can become hard to focus on anything else, but if you can shift the focus to the lessons they can learn and what is going right in their lives, it can help them optimize their brain, body, and health simply by reducing the overall stress level. [23:20] Devices and social media are addicting for children. We need to incorporate stress management practices like nature and physical play to balance out their daily routine. [24:55] There is a direct connection between our gut and our brain. The microbiome is vital to helping a child's brain develop fully and reduce inflammation. Nutrients regulate every single chemical reaction in a child's body. [26:25] Madiha uses a diet framework that starts with vegetables, proteins, and healthy fats. Make it easy and fun for your children to eat healthy food and teach them at a young age how it helps them keep their hormones in balance. [28:10] During the pandemic, diabetes has doubled in children. [28:55] Unfortunately, children today are deficient in a number of nutrients, and this causes a cascade of health issues. Madiha typically begins supplementing with vitamin D, fish oil, and probiotics. [32:10] The more kids can enjoy the process and participate in creating the healthy food they need, the more they will consume. [33:30] Mindfulness shows us how best to respond at many different levels at once. It allows children to have the perspective they need to live a healthy life. [35:20] The Holistic Rx is meant for anyone taking care of children who wants direction on how to live a mindful and healthy life. It centers around the child's health and diet, and how to help them recover from inflammation, insulin resistance, and more.     Mentioned in this Episode: theholisticrx.com holisticmommd.com @holisticmommd youtube.com/thegirlfrienddoctor dranna.com/show     Always seek the advice of your own physician or qualified health professional before starting any treatment or plans.

#301 – Marcey Rader – Revitalise Productivity

Revitalise Productivity with Marcey Rader Revitalise productivity means helping people find the time that they swear isn't there. Marcey helps people use their time in a more intentional way. Most people go through their day reacting to people, agendas and crises. People often are not clear about what they are going to do in their next 10 minutes. Instead, their devices ping at them and steal away their time. Those devices we mentioned - mobile phones - are useful tools says Marcey, when we are not allowing ourselves to be dictated by them. NoMoPhoBia - the fear of being without your phone. Have you experienced nomophobia? Awww, must have been hell for you! Marcey tells the story about her analogue watch. She wore it instead of her Apple Watch for an all day event. On that day, it was important for her to focus. But, she kept looking at the analogue watch to see if she'd had an email. http://thenext100days.org/wp-content/uploads/2021/10/NoMoPhobia.mp4 Kevin and Marcey both wear Apple Watches. They mentioned closing the move ring. This means they have daily targets for standing, exercising and moving. The move ring. Revitalise Productivity Tip - TURN OFF NOTIFICATIONS Marcey does a workshop called Focus Power Ups. One lady on the course told her about her Fitbit telling her to stand up all the time. Which she ignores. But, boy it distracts her. The lady was effectively in a battle of wills with the Fitbit. http://thenext100days.org/wp-content/uploads/2021/10/Marcey-Rader-Focus.mp4 Kevin pointed out that notifications on devices make you reactive. They deny focus. Notifications are normally on as default. Just turn off the notifications. Marcey recommends that some executives ONLY look at their email inbox once or twice a day. That's not practical for a personal assistant, it does rely on the role. It is sort of a reward. Revitalise Productivity Tip - What are Your 1 to 3 Priorities for Today? You ought not have more than 3. Focus on those that'll truly move the needle towards the place you'd like to be. http://thenext100days.org/wp-content/uploads/2021/10/Marcy-Rader-3-Daily-Priorities.mp4 Ask yourself what is that top task that I'll complete BEFORE I hit my inbox. That is a real behavioural shift for some people, especially those who check their email first thing in the morning. On the Google Work platform, you can use Inbox pause. That means, you pause seeing your emails until you are good and ready. Her top tier clients are never paused. Hello Sign emails are contracts, so they are let in too. Marcey processes email as a task, for instance. Revitalise Productivity Tip - Focus Do you schedule meetings when you are at your best? Marcey is at her best first thing in a morning. http://thenext100days.org/wp-content/uploads/2021/10/Marcy-Rader-Focus-Time.mp4 Burnout Overwhelm Too Many Notifications But who's to blame? Devices are designed to get us to use them more. Who's to blame? http://thenext100days.org/wp-content/uploads/2021/10/Marcey-Rader-Whos-to-Blame.mp4 We need to take ownership of our own decisions. Virtual Professional Marcey prefers the term "Virtual Professional" rather than "Virtual Assistant". She has hired from countries that are economically and politically disadvantage - such as, Venezuela, Philippines, Guatemala and Kenya. Make the assessment what your time is worth and contrast this with what you would spend on a VA. Marcey recommends Virtual Latinos - go here She also recommends iWorker - go here Before Bed Turn off your devices at least an hour before you go to bed.

The History of Computing
Getting Fit With Fitbit

The History of Computing

Play Episode Listen Later Nov 5, 2021 16:18


Fitbit was founded in 2007, originally as Healthy Metrics Research, Inc, by James Park and Eric Friedman. They had a goal to bring fitness trackers to market. They didn't invent the pedometer and in fact wanted to go far further. That prize goes to Abraham-Louis Perrelet of Switzerland in 1780 or possibly back to da Vinci. And there are stories of calculating the distance armies moved using various mechanisms that used automations based on steps or the spinning of wagon wheels. The era of wearables arguably began in 1953 when the transistor radio showed up and Akio Morita and Masaru Ibuka started Sony. People started to get accustomed to carrying around technology. 1961 and Claude Shannon and Edward Thorp build a small computer to time when balls would land in roulette. Which they put in a shoe. Meanwhile sensors that could detect motion and the other chips to essentially create a small computer in a watch-sized package were coming down in price. Apple had already released the Nike+iPod Sports Kit the year before, with a little sensor that went in my running shoes. And Fitbit capitalized on an exploding market for tracking fitness. Apple effectively proved the concept was ready for higher end customers. But remember that while the iPod was incredibly popular at the time, what about everyone else? Park and Friedman raised $400,000 on the idea in a pre-seed round and built a prototype. No, it wasn't actually a wearable, it was a bunch of sensors in a wooden box. That enabled them to shop around for more investors to actually finish a marketable device. By 2008 they were ready to take the idea to TechCrunch 50 and Tim O'Reilly and other panelists from TechCrunch loved it. And they picked up a whopping 2,000 pre-release orders. Only problem is they weren't exactly ready to take that kind of volume. So they toured suppliers around Asia for months and worked overtime in hotel rooms fixing design and architecture issues. And in 2009 they were finally ready and took 25,000 orders, shipping about one fifth of them. That device was called the Fitbit Tracker and took on a goal of 10,000 steps that became a popular goal in Japan in the 1960s. It's a little money-clip sized device with just one button that shows the status towards that 10,000 step goal. And once synchronized we could not only see tons of information about how many calories we burned and other statistics but we could also see Those first orders were sold directly through the web site. The next batch would be much different, going through Best Buy. The margins selling directly were much better and so they needed to tune those production lines. They went to four stores, then ten times that, then 15 times that. They announced the Fitbit Ultra in 2011. Here we got a screen that showed a clock but also came with a stopwatch. That would evolve into the Fitbit One in 2012. Bluetooth now allowed us to sync with our phones. That original device would over time evolve to the Zip and then the Inspire Clip. They grew fast in those first few years and enjoyed a large swathe of the market initially, but any time one vendor proves a market others are quick to fast-follow. The Nike Fuelband came along in 2012. There were also dozens of cheap $15 knock-offs in stores like Fry's. But those didn't have nearly as awesome an experience. A simple experience was the Fitbit Flex, released in 2013. The Fitbit could now be worn on the wrist. It looked more like the original tracker but a little smaller so it could slide in and out of a wristband. It could vibrate so could wake us up and remind us to get up and move. And the Fitbit Force came out that year, which could scroll through information on the screen, like our current step count. But that got some bad press for the nickel used on the device so the Charge came out the next year, doing much of the same stuff. And here we see the price slowly going up from below a hundred dollars to $130 as new models with better accelerometers came along. In 2014 they released a mobile app for all the major mobile platforms that allowed us to track devices through Bluetooth and opened up a ton of options to show other people our information. Chuck Schumer was concerned about privacy but the options for fitness tracking were about to explode in the other direction, becoming even less private. That's the same year the LG G Watch came out, sporting a Qualcomm Snapdragon chip. The ocean was getting redder and devices were becoming more like miniature computers that happened to do tracking as well. After Android Wear was released in 2014, now called Wear OS, the ocean was bound to get much, much redder. And yet, they continued to grow and thrive. They did an IPO, or Initial Public Offering, in 2015 on the back of selling over 21 million devices. They were ready to reach a larger market. Devices were now in stores like Walmart and Target, and they had badges. It was an era of gamification and they were one of the best in the market at that. Walk enough steps to have circumnavigated the sun? There's a badge for that. Walk the distance of the Nile? There's a badge for that. Do a round trip to the moon and back? Yup, there's a badge for that as well. And we could add friends in the app. Now we could compete to see who got more steps on the day. And of course some people cheated. Once I was wearing a Fitbit on my wrist I got 60,000 steps one day as I painted the kitchen. So we sometimes didn't even mean to cheat. And an ecosystem had sprung up around Fitbit. Like Fitstar, a personal training coach, which got acquired by Fitbit and rebranded as Fitbit Coach. 2015 was also when the Apple Watch was released. The Apple Watch added many of the same features like badges and similar statistics. By then there were models of the Fitbit that could show who was calling our phone or display a text message we got. And that was certainly part of the Wear OS for of Android. But those other devices were more expensive and Fitbit was still able to own the less expensive part of the market and spend on R&D to still compete at the higher end. They were flush with cash by 2016 so while selling 22 million more devices, they bought Coin and Pebble that year, taking in technology developed through crowdfunding sources and helping mass market it. That's the same year we got the Fitbit Alta, effectively merging the Charge and Alta and we got HR models of some devices, which stands for Heart Rate. Yup, they could now track that too. They bought Vector Watch SRL in 2017, the same year they released the Ionic smartwatch, based somewhat on the technology acquired from Pebble. But the stock took a nosedive, and the market capitalization was cut in half. They added weather to the Ionic and merged that tech with that from the Blaze, released the year before. Here, we see technology changing quickly - Pebble was merged with Blaze but Wear OS from Google and Watch OS from Apple were forcing changes all the faster. The apps on other platforms were a clear gap as were the sensors baked into so many different integrated circuit packages. But Fitbit could still compete. In 2018 they released a cheaper version of the smartwatch called the Versa. They also released an API that allowed for a considerable amount of third party development, as well as Fitbit OS 3. They also bought Twine Health in 2018 Partnered with Adidas in 2018 for the ionic. Partnered with Blue Cross Blue Shield to reduce insurance rates 2018 released the Charge 3 with oxygen saturation sensors and a 40% larger screen than the Charge 2. From there the products got even more difficult to keep track of, as they poked at every different corner of the market. The Inspire, Inspire HR, Versa 2, Versa Lite, Charge 4, Versa 3, Sense, Inspire 2, Luxe. I wasn't sure if they were going to figure out the killer device or not when Fitbit was acquired by Google in 2021. And that's where their story ends and the story of the ubiquitous ecosystem of Google begins. Maybe they continue with their own kernels or maybe they're moving all of their devices to WearOS. Maybe Google figures out how to pull together all of their home automation and personal tracking devices into one compelling offer. Now they get to compete with Amazon who now has the Halo to help attack the bottom of the market. Or maybe Google leaves the Fitbit team alone to do what they do. Fitbit has sold over 100 million devices and sports well over 25 million active users. The Apple Watch surpassed that number and blew right past it. WearOS lives in a much more distributed environment where companies like Asus, Samsung, and LG sell products but it appears to have a similar installation base. And it's a market still growing and likely looking for a leader, as it's easy to imagine a day when most people have a smart watch. But the world has certainly changed since Mark Weiser was the Chief Technologist at the famed Xerox Palo Alto Research Center, or Xerox Parc in 1988 when he coined the term "ubiquitous computing.” Technology hadn't entered every aspect of our lives at the time like it has now. The team at Fitbit didn't invent wearables. George Atwood invented them in 1783. That was mostly pulleys and mechanics. Per V. Brüel first commercialized the piezoelectric accelerometer in 1943. It certainly took a long time to get packaged into an integrated circuit and from there it took plenty of time to end up on my belt loop. But from there it took less than a few years to go on my wrist and then once there were apps for all the things true innovation came way faster. Because it turns out that once we open up a bunch of APIs, we have no idea the amazing things people use with what then go from devices to platforms. But none of that would have happened had Fitbit not helped prove the market was ready for Weiser's ubiquitous computing. And now we get to wrestle with the fallout while innovation is moving even faster. Because telemetry is the opposite of privacy. And if we forget to protect just one of those API endpoints, like not implementing rate throttling or messing up the permissions, or leaving a micro-service open to all the things, we can certainly end up telling the world all about things. Because the world is watching, whether we think we're important enough to watch or not.
