Digital Amnesia: How Technology is Stealing Your Brain … and How to Steal it Back
Digital Amnesia: The experience of forgetting something important because you trust a connected device!
Since we’ve been able to place more memory power in the palm of our hand than was used to land a man on the moon, we’ve banished our own memory to the back burner. The more we rely on technology to retrieve information, the more we erode the process to recall that information ‘naturally.’
In this highly interactive, empowering, and funny, presentation, Bob shows you how to keep your memory in shape, how to steal your brain back from technology…and how you’ll never need to say “Sorry, I forgot your name” again.
This same method, which is the foundation of all memory systems dating back thousands of years, can also be adapted to recall safety procedures and more.
