Studies show that on average we consult our phones as often as 150 times a day. Everyone is screaming to the consumer and doing whatever they can to get their attention while not considering the long term ramifications of such excessive stimuli. With the onslaught of sounds and vibrations, consumers are being trained that immediate action is required. With brain receptors being washed in notification happiness, we check back and thus like other addictions, ‘neurons that fire together, wire together’ and the happiness loop is formed.
Join us as we dive deeper into the conversation and discuss “Device Addiction”!

Scott Adelman Memorial Fund
Scott M. Adelman was a founding member, former board member and committee chair of the Carroll Technology Council, but more importantly, a friend and mentor to all of us. He passed away on October 22, 2016 at the age of 53 as a result of a heart attack that he suffered earlier in the week. As an organization, we are deeply saddened by this great loss.
