Yesterday, I was still not confident about my idea. Nick and Ross held 1-to-1 sessions with anyone who was in the same boat. Before today I had a list of a few ideas including, collecting data on phone usage, procrastination and in a similar vein, laziness. Laziness was something I wrote quite a few notes and spider diagrams on. Going into how laziness and procrastination might affect how creative you are because you’re giving yourself more time to come up with ideas, unlike just doing the task straight away and doing the first idea you have without much chance to change.
During the 1-to-1 session, we talked a lot more about the phone usage and what that can lead to in a few years, even 100 or 1000 years into the future. A lot of what I had to put forward, was not things I had researched recently, but things I had seen or read in the past. For example, there have been studies that showed our brains may be getting smaller because of all the information we have on hand through our phones. In a sense, our phones could eventually function as our brains. Another thing this has been theorized to lead to is a kind of hive mind through the internet.
Now there is still a lot of research I need to do on this because a lot of my ideas so far are just things I remember hearing about.
