SNVC Team First Week Flip Phone
Abe Pandit - CEO
As a Reiki teacher and spiritualist, I've been concerned with how this generation seems to have lost touch with themselves and the present moment courtesy the pinging phone.
Yuxin Zhang - Designer
I once believed that the technologies that I grew up with had granted me greater control towards my life, yet recently I started to feel controlled by them. The likably idealized self that I’ve created with social media leave my real self all the more isolated.
Bhargav Desikan - Researcher
A former researcher in artificial intelligence and a python developer, I was highly dependent on his cell-phone. After having done the flip-phone challenge for a week and seeing the difference it can make, I’m committed to making as many possible people experience the same. Our smartphone experiences are largely characterised by attention seeking apps and poor management, and by giving the people power over their phones, it is possible to make a very discernible change in their lives. Believing in something is the first step to making others believe in it, and that's why I think I should be a part of this team - because i believe this can make a positive difference.
