This is an interesting development related to a piece
shared by Josh almost a year ago about Google's former "design ethicist",
Tristan Harris. Tristan has been waging a war against engineering products
that vie for user attention at the expense of their users' wellbeing. He
raises interesting questions about addiction and the morals of trying to
increase time spent (even on a project like Wikipedia).
Now it seems to be getting traction. They have raised tens of millions of
$s for PSAs about tech addiction and are developing guidelines for
engineers and designers. I'm curious to see them when they're done.
