Robert Rosenberger, an assistant professor at the Georgia Institute of Technology School of Public Policy, was recently quoted in an article entitled “How Push Messages Change Us” (Original title “Wie Push-Mitteilungen uns verändern”) in the German publication Süddeutsche Zeitung.
Here's a translated excerpt:
"Distractions are everywhere," warns the meditation app by distracting you from work by push message. "You've already taken 8,000 steps today ," praises the pedometer app when you drag yourself home. "Are you thinking about pizza?" Asks the digital pizza supplier after work. The friendly message from a science magazine: "We hope you have a good day, here's what the climate apocalypse might look like."
