內容介紹

Chris Dancy,被媒體稱為「網路最高度連結人士」,當所有人都在掙扎中否定科技的現狀,Chris Dancy有一些好話要說。在本書中給予讀者們有效使用科技的建議,確實地建議我們如何與科技共存,活出健康快樂的自己。

2002年對Dancy而言十分艱辛,他不但過重、失業,還對科技重度成癮。他一天抽好幾包菸、嗑藥,情緒暴躁又鬱鬱寡歡。可喜的是,Dancy發現了母親為他保留的全面童年記錄,他開始深思,或許審視生活形態對身體及其他面向的影響,可以讓他重新找到照顧自己的方法。在駕馭了自身生命故事之後,他是否能夠學會駕馭自己的壞習慣呢?

Dancy運用自身的科技知識,調整每日固定使用APP、感應器的劑量,並有固定與現實連結的時數。他用與近藤麻理恵同等的整理術智慧,整理他的科技生活。而如今——他要與普羅大眾分享他的發現。在眾多創新有趣的小撇步中,包括更換信用卡顏色可以讓他少刷卡,以及懷舊物件激起的感激之情。

本書講述現代人在現代社會中的重生與救贖。Dancy集結智慧和洞見,分享改善生活的方法:移動的方法、飲食方式、警慎交友⋯⋯都是使我們蛻變更新的關鍵。Dancy已努力為我們斬斷荊棘,開闢這條將要扭轉你生命的道路。

書評

"Chris offers a raw and personal view of how technology can consume you, and through his experiences offers insights to how you should consume technology to live a healthy life." ―Miriam McLemore, Enterprise Strategist Amazon, former CIO Coca-Cola

 

 

 

"I listen intently whenever I get to hear Chris Dancy speak as I know what Im hearing will be the truth.” ―Kristin Hildebrand, founder, Wone, former global creative concept director, Nike 

 

 

 

"Inspiring. Chris Dancy offers actionable advice on how to harness technology to improve our lives -- from the practical to the spiritual." ―Julia Raue, director, TVNZ, former CIO Air New Zealand

 

 

 

“Dont Unplug is Dancys absorbing memoir of his remarkable journey from his Moms basement to the world stage. Both his descent into irrelevance and his subsequent metamorphosis into a highly-sought-after digital sage were on the wings of his obsessive, recorded, measured and minutely examined life, something only possible by a consummate technologist in the prime of technology. His beguiling story becomes an object lesson in how to make your life better with tech, while simultaneously making tech better with your life." ―Alan Cooper-Father of Visaul Basic and Computer History Museum Fellow

 

 

 

"In a world where corporations and governments/outside forces use our data to monitor and manipulate our lives, we need guides who can show us how to take back control. Having lived the highs and lows of what technology can do to us as humans, Chris Dancy is a herald of the future we need to build. Dont Unplug is full of powerful stories, valuable insights and practical advice of how to be a better human in a world where the pace of change of technology is only going to increase. Do you want to ride the digital roller-coaster or be ridden? This book will make sure you make the right choice." ―Rohan Gunatillake, Author This is Happening: Redesigning Mindfulness for our Very Modern Lives and CEO buddhify

 

 

 

”When Chris Dancy says hes our future, we should take it as both invitation and threat. Heres a vision of what youll feel is either the next stage of humanity, or its utter dissolution. If you want to optimize human beings for cyborg reality, this is the direction to go. If youre afraid of what it means to live in a society where humans are programmed like anything else, then this is the nightmare, articulated.” ―Douglas Rushkoff, author, Throwing Rocks at the Google Bus

 

 

 

“Dancy is the ultimate example of two revolutions underway in tech: the Internet of Things (smart thermostats, garage doors, toothbrushes, tennis racquets) and quantified self (what you learn about yourself from trackers).” ―Mashable

 

 

 

“The tip of the spear where technology is concerned is Chris Dancy.” ―BBC

 

 

 

"You might say he's the closest thing to a real-life cyborg." ―Fox News
