This talk was given at a local TEDx event, produced independently of the TED Conferences. Lior Frenkel explains why being hooked to our Smartphones is the most interesting - yet silent - addiction of our times. Supposing the Smartphone is here to stay, he urges us to become aware of the addiction - and discuss how a digital diet should look like - a moment before technology becomes a part of our physical bodies.

Lior Frenkel is Co-Founder and CEO of the nuSchool, and the founder of UNDIGITIZE.ME - a social project dealing with Smartphone addiction. He also writes and speaks about the digital world and the Y-Generation (Wired Magazine, Web Summit).
Lior has graduated from the Technion (B.Sc) and has an MA in Philosophy and History of Science and Ideas from Tel-Aviv Uni.

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)
