Life experiment: Can YOU take a break from tech 1 day out of the week EVERY WEEK, consistently?!

Technology... in PLAIN ENGLISH!

filmmaker on aol tiffany shlain future starts here technology

Roughly a year ago, I had the fortune of speaking with Tiffany Shlain about Season 1 of The Future Starts Here, a film series she created about the role tech plays in our lives and societies. I was delighted because she has gone on record saying she considers herself “a conversation-maker, not a filmmaker.” I’m still amazed she allows herself only 6 days of technology per week. Every Friday, beginning at sundown, through to sundown Saturday is reserved for family time! That means: No computers, no smartphones, no tablets – basically the rule is – No screens for 24 hours!! This pays light-hearted homage to Shabbat, which begins at sundown on Fridays. Tiffany says taking a “technology Shabbat” is a significant part of her lifestyle. I can only imagine the discipline it took in the very beginning. Here’s what I asked her in 2013:

Q: Hi Tiffany. It’s…

Xabi Alonso beim FC Bayern – und das ist gut so!


Frank Wilhelm Gaul's Blog

Wer hätte denn noch während der WM gedacht, dass ein Real-Urgestein wie Xabi Alonso auch nur mit dem Gedanken spielen könnte jemals zum FC Bayern zu wechseln!

Profi und erfahren genug hat er die Signale von Ancelotti durch zweimalige Nicht-Berücksichtigung richtig gedeutet, die Zukunft auf seiner angestammten Position gehört bei Real nun anderen. Und dann kam zeitgleich die Anfrage aus München.

Man darf Xabi Alonso durchaus glauben, dass er sich sehr schnell auf das Angebot des FC Bayern eingelassen hat, natürlich auch befördert durch das immer enger werdende Transfer-Fenster.


Er ist mehr als ein Gewinn für den FC Bayern, sportlich wie auch für die Außendarstellung und die Wahrnehmung des Vereins weltweit. Unsere germanischen Sport-Journalisten vergessen bei aller Kritik immer gerne mangels Sprachkenntnissen, wie die Reaktionen zu diesem Transfer weltweit aussehen, vor allem in Spanien und bei den Real-Fans.

Nach einem so erfahrenen gestandenen Spieler mit der Ausstrahlung auf dem Platz…

What is Holding Me Back?


Leadership Without Being in Charge

If I am only a passenger in the vehicle thinking I am the driver, I do not have the control I believe I have. If everyone is a passenger, while an unknown driver who knows our destination is driving, what is there to worry about? If the driver doesn’t know the destination why am I a passenger? If I am in one car on a train, where people are committed to one side of the car I ride makes all the difference in our destination, as long as the view from the side I am on makes me happy, confirms my belief, all is well. When I don’t like my view of the direction we are headed I may be tempted to switch sides believing that affects our destination somehow.
