A hand­ful of peop­le working at a hand­ful of tech com­pa­nies steer the thoughts of bil­li­ons of peop­le every day, says design thin­ker Tris­tan Har­ris. From Face­book noti­fi­ca­ti­ons to Snapst­reaks to You­Tube auto­plays, they’­re all com­pe­ting for one thing: your atten­ti­on. Har­ris shares how the­se com­pa­nies prey on our psy­cho­lo­gy for their own pro­fit and calls for a design renais­sance in which our tech ins­tead encou­ra­ges us to live out the time­li­ne we want.

Lea­ve Face­book. Now.
