Knowledge, Learning, Community

Rather that restate the four myths, which doesn't really tell us anything, I'll restate the four counterpoints (quoted):

  1. The concept of addiction does not encompass the full range of pleasures, risks, and uses that people create with technology;
  2. Some technology cannot be fixed by more design, and some technology should not be  built at all;
  3. Many of the most important parts of digital well-being cannot be captured by quantitative metrics; and
  4. Health and well-being cannot be reduced to the single variable of screen time.

I think a good case could be made for all four of these points.
