#ProtectingSight #388: How better tech could protect us from distraction. Amaurosis fugax, the savvy coder, & the joys of compounding.

Welcome to my daily learning journal. Here is today’s list:

1. Ted Talk – Tristan Harris: How better tech could protect us from distraction. “How often does technology interrupt us from what we really mean to be doing? At work and at play, we spend a startling amount of time distracted by pings and pop-ups — instead of helping us spend our time well, it often feels like our tech is stealing it away from us. Design thinker Tristan Harris offers thoughtful new ideas for technology that creates more meaningful interaction. He asks: “What does the future of technology look like when you’re designing for the deepest human values?”” (ted.com)

Insightful talk. And I’m guilty of many of the social media distractions mentioned.

2. Cataract Surgery – Uday Devgan MD – 1156: skill level after 100 cataract cases. Great hands for case #100.
