    "First We Make Brains, Then We Make Love: The Coming Fusion of Inner and Outer Technology" Jeff gave this talk at the first "Dreamers, Visionaries, Renegades" Festival in Toronto, Sept 2012. Modern communications technology shapes our minds. This can be problematic; too often it fixates, alienates and scatters the mind. But the news isn't all bad. That technology is such a powerful shaper is also an opportunity. It means, if we design technology in line with principles of mental health (and meditation insights in particular), then our smart phones and laptops and interfaces might become a force for psychological - and spiritual - good.
