Are you there? It’s me, messenger.

When we think about enjoying good quality conversation, how many of us think that messaging on social media fulfills that need?

Although technology can bring People Voodoo and its benefits to so many more people than word of mouth could ever have done, the process needs to be a positive experience. We need to be as humane armed with a computer as we would be face to face. We can certainly give our wording plenty of thought but what about the practical side to communicating over the internet?

In this 15 minute TED talk, Tristan Harris, co-founder of the movement for “Time Well Spent”, offers some thought provoking insights into communication and technology. People Voodoo loves the way he encourages designers to bring more values and consideration to computer based conversations.
