Is digital a connected life?

As the CEO of Siempo Andrew Dunn’s mission is to reimagine the way people interact with technology. Siempo, which started life as a new kind of smartphone designed to respect people’s attention and enhance human well-being, Siempo is evolving into a software platform that forms a layer between addictive digital experiences, to those that encourage people to be more intentional about the quality of their digitised lives.

In this Digital Mindfulness talk, Andrew talks about his journey to focusing on digital intentionality, and how living a connected life led him to realise that he was not spending his time well. He also shares fantastic insights on how to live a more intentional digitised life in a world of constant distraction and low quality digital experiences.

I’m typing this in a nearly silent coworking space. All of us here at HBR are intently focused on our computer screens. The tap-tap of our fingers on keyboards, occasional rustle of paper, and clink of a coffee mug landing on a desk are the sounds of work. Look into our screens, though, and you often see a noisy, sometimes raucous place. We’re commenting on news stories, checking on projects, sharing photos of kids and cats, and flagging work problems. Looking around my office, I’m considering how connected I really am with my colleagues. Is this kind of interaction enough? Are we actually feeling isolated or lonely, staring at our screens?
