🔗 'Our minds can be hijacked': the tech insiders who fear a smartphone dystopia
October 8, 2017

Really great article discussing the immense amount of power tech companies have amassed through smartphones and a fun 'lil touch of psychological manipulation.

Yes, I understand that sentence sounds a bit hypobolic/conspiracy-theoryish, however I agree that tech's power/abilities have been rapidly growing this decade and is now culminating in the political insanities (eg Brexit/Trump) we're seeing now.
