Margaret Morris - Left to Our Own Devices

We have been warned about the psychological perils of technology: distraction and the loss of the ability to carry on a conversation among them. But our devices and data are woven into our lives. In Left to Our Own Devices, Morris offers examples of individuals applying technologies in unexpected ways. Morris examines these kinds of personalized life hacks, chronicling the ways that people have adapted technology to strengthen social connection, enhance well-being, and affirm identity.
