Last spring I collaborated with MIT grad school professor Dr. Agnis Stibe on a scientific research paper based upon the findings I revealed in my latest book, “The Impact of Technology on Behavior & Happiness.” Earlier this week we learned the paper has been accepted for publication based upon its scholarly merit. This, of course, is a wonderful honor.
The link to our submission is below.
I met Dr. Stibe more than a decade ago when I was teaching a class in Riga, Latvia. His interest in my work around the Worry Circle, and mine in his expanding global expertise in technology-influenced societies, have kept us in touch as mutually respectful colleagues. He is an interesting and forward thinking leader in technology influenced behavioral dynamics and I have enjoyed collaborating with him immensely.
After I spoke at MIT’s grad school on “The Impact,” Dr. Stibe and I decided to pool our expertise to shape the message for submission to the 11th International Conference on Persuasive Technology in Salzburg, Austria.
He presented our findings at the symposium workshop and the work, as is usually the case, was embraced by its globally diverse audience. This annual event is a big deal in the technology world, as scientists and behaviorists from around the world convene to share discoveries and innovations dealing with where the digital world is headed, and how these new wave changes will shape and reshape urban behaviors.

If you have any questions about the subject matter or are interested in booking a learning session tied to his fascinating topic, feel free to drop me a note.
Thank you for your interest in our work and my book, “The Impact of Technology on Behavior & Happiness.”.
