#160 - A tech vibe shift is coming
Today's episode from 7th March 2022. Have you heard? Things are changing. A vibe shift is coming. After The Cut's viral article about a change in trends in popular culture, we ask whether the tech angle of a vibe shift is the metaverse and web3. Then later, are you struggling to stay focussed? We'll help you identify the triggers causing your mind to drift and how you can manage them. This instalment of Galaxy Brain is a reflection of a New York magazine “Vibe Shift”, where writer Allison P. Davis details her discovery of the so-called shift in culture in New York, without fully explaining where this shift will end. In line with this thinking, Charlie Warzel explores the idea of the premature declaration of trends and how that can be applied to the Web3 and the Metaverse. With technology rapidly advancing to allow instant communication almost anywhere in the world, it’s no wonder that many of us are struggling with an onslaught of notifications. It’s easy to blame yourself, but as Nir Eyral explains in this edition of Nir and Far, these distractions aren’t caused by internal triggers but from cues that arise in your environment, prompting an immediate response. So, if you’re finding it difficult to tune out these unnecessary distractions, here is how you can get back on track.
