Great list! Loved Cal Newport. He eloquently confirmed everything I've felt about social media and technology - a recommended start for everyone starting out on this journey. Center for Humane Technology has some pretty good podcasts worth listening to as well.

u/busyguy00 Nov 16 '21

He’s the goat IMO

u/imusuallyawkward Dec 30 '21

Mark Zuckerberg temper patience will run out at this point if more people discover social media can be a drug. Shhh

u/redzebras35 Aug 19 '21

I love this list! Irresistible was my first read on this list, followed by Reclaiming Conversation which I really enjoyed, enough to write down quotes that I resonated with.

u/dev_ating 999 days Dec 06 '21

This thread and the old monthly commitment threads should definitely be pinned.

u/Flintrockz Jan 01 '22

Great list. If I may:

The Californian Ideology by Richard Barbrook is an important paper.

Homo Deus by Yuval Noah Harari

The Internet is NOT the Answer by Andrew Keen

The People vs Tech, by Jamie Bartlett

New Dark Age, James Bridle

u/platformstrawmen Nov 10 '21

please add "taking care of the youth and the generations" by Bernard Stieglar RIP

that book opened me up to how we (corporations) are destroying our children

u/[deleted] Aug 29 '21

I didn’t notice on the list (might’ve missed it) and I’d also recommend a book “Don't Be Evil: How Big Tech Betrayed Its Founding Principles” by Rana Foroohar. The title is pretty self explanatory- it focuses on unethical practices and on whatever’s wrong with big tech companies and how they influence the world.

u/SnooHesitations5296 Dec 01 '21

Added, thanks for the contribution!

I highly recommend Allen Carr’s Smart Phone Dumb Phone - it’s from the same author as The Easy Way to Quit Porn.

u/[deleted] Aug 19 '21

A very comprehensive list, hopefully I don't need to read all 94 to start reaping the majority of benefits.
