If you flip the two words “resilience” and “tech,” you get two different interpretations. One can have more positive connotations than the other. Can you guess which way it goes?
- Tech Resilience means trying to reduce your addiction to the digital sirens all around you that attempt to get your attention. That’s like … this blog post :+).
- Resilience Tech means using technology to make yourself more resilient to anything in your environment: be that digital or physical. This report site is meant to do that for you :+).
Popular tech resilience gifts would include things like:
- A timed safe (Amazon referral link) in which to put your mobile devices so you don’t feel a need to check the latest post from your favorite celebrity.
- Using a meditation app to be able to center yourself and enable you to step away from your distractions. I recommend the simple Forest app to start.
- The fidget spinner genre has a newly updated version in stainless steel that is both pretty and sturdy. It uses ceramic bearings for a long lasting spin, too.
Looking for a few resilience tech gifts for the holiday season?
- A service for blocking unwanted people on your Twitter feeds using AI/ML — and yes, I use this service and can vouch for it. Plus Tracy Chou is the CEO of the venture!
- If you feel unsafe walking around at night, a well-designed handheld siren can give you a little more peace of mind. It draws attention to you fast and efficiently.
- When there’s flooding concerns around your house, it’s possible to fight water with water using a damming system that minimizes the progress of a flood.
I’d like to get back to adding to this post one day, if folks out there find it useful. —JM
