SAN FRANCISCO - A group of Silicon Valley technologists who were early
employees at Facebook and Google, alarmed over the ill effects of social
networks and smartphones, are banding together to challenge the companies
they helped build.
The cohort is creating a union of concerned experts called the Center for
Humane Technology. Along with the nonprofit media watchdog group Common
Sense Media, it also plans an anti-tech addiction lobbying effort and an ad
campaign at 55,000 public schools in the United States.
