Max Stossel - How To Design Healthy Relationships With Technology... And Each Other

The Extra Mile - The Official Charity Miles Podcast

If you're looking to develop a healthier relationship with your technology, this interview is for you. Max Stossel is an award-winning poet, filmmaker and the Head of Education & Content for the Center for Humane Technology, an organization of former tech insiders and CEOs dedicated to realigning technology with humanity’s best interests.  (He's also a longtime friend.) When I first met Max, nearly 9 years ago, he worked for a startup that could have been a precursor to Tik Tok. There, he experienced first-hand the "Social Dilemma" that comes with trying to make a habit-forming app, with the emerging consequence of hooking people to their screens. Around the same time, Max heard a poet that inspired him to begin writing and performing poetry himself, also turning his poems into short films. His third poem, Subway Love went viral.  As did his next poem, The Panda is Dancing.  They've been seen over 15 million times. Max's poetry often explores our relationships with technology, presence and the importance of prioritizing the relationships that matter to us most. With the Center for Humane Technology, he helps teach people to more consciously design our relationships with technology.   However, after re-listening to our discussion, I think his key lessons are about consciously designing our relationships with each other. Big thanks to Max for sharing so much with us! #EveryMileMatters!

Screen Sanity

Max Stossel is an award-winning poet, filmmaker, and speaker. He is also the Head of Education & Content for the Center for Humane Technology, an organization of former tech insiders and CEOs dedicated to realigning technology with humanity’s best interests. If the Center is unfamiliar to you, one of their products probably is not – the Netflix documentary The Social Dilemma, an exploration of the hazards of online life for the flourishing and well-being of our kids. Max’s work has brought him to the front lines of public discourse about the impact of screens on our culture, and on the many ways tech companies are profiting off of our attention at the expense of our own well-being. On this episode of the podcast, Max joins START co-founder Krista Boan to talk about how he began this work, the ways we need to reframe how we think about our tech vocabulary words like “attention” and “algorithm,” and how online engagement drives people to extremism. Screen Sanity is Executive Produced by Krista Boan and START.It is produced and edited by Mike Cosper for Cosper Productions.

A Serious Black Hole with Max Stossel

Dealing and Feeling with Kathy Redwine

A cell phone is a good way for kids to talk and text with friends, look up information for school, or watch some funny videos. But along with that, we are giving our kids a concentration robber, a perfectly designed self-comparison machine, and an unlimited pornography portal.  To break all that down, Kathy has invited Max Stossel, a lauded poet, filmmaker, author and the Head of Education & Content for the Center for Humane Technology. They have a frank discussion about social media and its effect on our children. They also focus on the hopeful aspects of communities working together to become more aware and responsible with technology. Also the importance of parents to be educated and to have those difficult conversations with kids, that lead to them making healthy decisions.  Learn more about Max and The Center For Humane Technology here

S2 Ep 12: Screen Time with Max Stossel of the Center for Humane Technology

The Idea Fountain: Life Changing Conversations

Here’s to unplugging over the holidays.This month on The Idea Fountain Max Stossel, from the Center for Humane Technology, did a fireside chat about screen time which turned into a bit of a therapy sessions for all involved.Max said “Social media didn’t create our problems but it poured gasoline on them.” Removing likes, 5G, internet trolls, parenting, emotional intelligence, AI, creativity - we covered it all in this episode.I know it always feels good to tape an episode of the Idea Fountain live with a group of friends at my house. The personal connection is a highlight much more than just liking photos on my phone. Still, I love connecting and staying in touch with people on line. Less time on screens will be a 2020 New Years Resolution for me. Wishing you more of whatever you want in 2020!
