In this interview, part of Big Think’s Humanizing Technology Series, artist Jonathan Harris describes four trends that are reshaping culture in the digital age: Compression, Disposability, Curation, and Self-Promotion, and takes steps to counteract them, something to consider and take to heart.
I’ve been a fan of Harris for a long time. It started when I discovered his We Feel Fine project. Since then there has been his TED talk, and his Balloons of Bhutan project. More recently he launched Cowbird, a kind of Wikipedia for life’s experiences.
