What to do about the problems technology is creating for kids

My son, Kevin, is the founder of a startup, called Chatterbox. They’re about to come out of stealth mode.

Kevin wrote a manifesto describing why he created Chatterbox. From the manifesto:

On the one hand, kids are becoming screen addicts at an early age. On the other hand, smartphones, tablets and smart TVs are “black boxes” and kids have no idea how they work. Today’s technology is neither teaching kids how current technology works, nor preparing them to cope with future technology.

If you’re a parent — or just care about the future of humanity — please give this a read.

If you’d like to stay in touch with the Chatterbox project and mission, please go here to sign up for Kevin’s mailing list, and he’ll keep you posted.
