Push notifications buzz in your pocket, red bubbles demand attention, and endless distractions sit at your fingertips. It can feel impossible to pull away from. But that’s kind of the point. When people talk about the “attention economy,” they’re referring to the fact that your time and attention are the currency on which today’s applications make money. Because apps profit off of the total time you spend on their platform, there’s a strong incentive to use psychological tricks to keep you endlessly hooked. But it doesn’t have to be this way. Tristan Harris, who runs Time Well Spent, is working to create a world where platforms can more honestly respect their users’ time.

Hunting For A Rare Congolese Weed Strain With “The Kings of Cannabis”: VICE on HBO, Full Episode (15:31)
VICE News · 2 months ago
Over the past 20 years, Franco Loja and Arjan Roskam, known as the "Kings of Cannabis," have made millions of dollars scouring the world for unique strains of weed to breed and then sell. Now, they've turned their sights on Equatorial Africa, specifically the Democratic Republic of the Congo, as their next gold mine — and a way to revolutionize the cannabis industry. "Equatorial Africa is one the best preserved because of the wars, the lack of infrastructure, political unrest. All these situations created isolation there," Loja explained. "So that's where we're going." Loja and Roskam built their global powerhouse on inbred strains of cannabis called "landraces" that they've collected from all over the world — Argentina, Australia, and Brazil, just to name a few spots. Without these strains, the duo's various breeding enterprises, Amsterdam coffeeshops, and even distribution centers wouldn't exist. VICE News met up with the “Kings of Cannabis” for a trip to the Democratic Republic of the Congo to hunt for one of the rarest species of Cannabis yet, the original Congolese landrace.

The ancient city designed to track time (03:25)
Vox · 6 months ago
Keeping time was challenging for ancient civilizations, so this one built a city to do it. Follow Johnny on Instagram: https://goo.gl/CduwlO and Facebook: https://goo.gl/l0x5cA The first Vox Borders documentary is releasing on Youtube and Facebook on October 17th. The other five documentaries will release weekly after that. Subscribe to the newsletter to stay up to date on the Vox Borders documentary releases: http://www.vox.com/borders-email, or follow Johnny on social media. This dispatch is from the ancient archaeological site at Teotihuacán, in Mexico. I walked around the ruins with a guide, and learned about how the people who built the site planned it in a way that helped them track time. Scholars theorize that the structures at Teotihuacán were built to align with the cosmos on certain days of the year, which let the people know when it was time to plant crops or conduct rituals. Vox Borders is a new international series focused on telling the human stories that emerge from lines on the map. I've traveled to six different border locations to produce a final set of documentaries. While I travel I'm releasing video dispatches on YouTube and Facebook, documenting my experiences in a vlog that's independent from the final Vox Borders documentaries.
