Digital Is Killing Our Planet And What You Can Do About It

Presented by

Gerry McGovern > Hosts: Patrick Bosek and Scott Abel

About this talk

Used wisely, digital could be saving our planet, making things more productive and efficient, and more environmentally friendly, while improving living standards. Right now, however, digital is killing our planet. It is helping make the rich the super-rich, the middle class the working class, and the working class the working poor. Join us for Coffee and Content with information architecture expert, Gerry McGovern. We'll discuss topics including the technology productivity paradox, the impact of web waste, cloud waste, and email (SPAM or otherwise), and, why he believes digital has delivered too much useless waste. McGovern will share his thoughts on common myths like 'knowledge workers are natural communicators and collaborators', and he'll provide us with suggestions for change — what we can do right now — and into the future. Can't make it? Register, and we'll send you a link to watch a recording when convenient. Coffee and Content is brought to you by The Content Wrangler and is sponsored by Heretto, a content operations platform for knowledge management that turns product content into engaging digital experiences.
