Don’t spend less time on your devices.
Spend time better.
So we wrote a book on how to live with your technology,
rather than live without it.
Curious what's in the book?
A Note from Nandan Nilekani
The pandemic made everything digital. Like many of us, I was spending a lot more time on my screens. In mid-2020, tired of video calls, I started meeting my colleagues for socially-distanced walks in the park.
Talking to them, I realised they shared similar frustrations with their devices. On one such walk in the park, Tanuj and I realised that we had the same approach to managing our devices - designing for calm.
Over many more walks, we refined the idea of Bitfulness: a system that helps you live mindfully with your tech.
The Art of Bitfulness is a compendium of strategies that help you have a healthier relationship with technology. It doesn’t demand an iron will or giving up your devices. It is not about spending less time online, but spending time online better.
We hope you find it useful.Nandan.
