 60 Minutes: "Brain Hacking" with Tristan Harris from Time Well Spent

We're the tech industry. And we control a billion people's attention.

Because whether it's apps, politicians, or your friends…
All of them go through screens we design before they reach you.

The problem is, our goals aren’t the same as your goals. So…

We win the more we keep you scrolling.
We win the more we hook your kids.
We win the more things interrupt you.
We win when outrage keeps you hooked to news.

We don’t want it to be like this.
But we're trapped... until you help us change the industry. 

Are you in?

people want to change the industry

 

Time Well Spent is a movement to transform the race for attention so it aligns with our best interests.

 

Change the Model

Replace the treadmill for attention with aligned business models.

 

 Change Design Practices

Get technology companies to design to empower us and reduce pollution of our attention.

Tristan Harris from Time Well Spent describes how CouchSurfing measures "net positive hours" created between strangers.

We win the more we help you get offscreen.
We win the more we enrich your children's lives.
We win the more we help you focus on what matters.
We win the more news leaves with you lasting understanding and truth.

In a world full of increasing distractions and noise…
we can create a world where everything is competing to help us spend our time well.
