This talk was given at a local TEDx event, produced independently of the TED Conferences. Judy Estrin shares with us masterfully how we need to take care of our digital lives the same way we take care of our diets. As we create and innovate constantly, the unintended consequences of our progress may keep us away from thinking more.

About TEDx, x = independently organized event In the spirit of ideas worth spreading, TEDx is a program of local, self-organized events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience. At a TEDx event, TEDTalks video and live speakers combine to spark deep discussion and connection in a small group. These local, self-organized events are branded TEDx, where x = independently organized TED event. The TED Conference provides general guidance for the TEDx program, but individual TEDx events are self-organized.* (*Subject to certain rules and regulations)
