    Hi, I'm Laurence 'Cerulean' Warner, a British performing artist.Back in May 2018, as a techie Fulbright Scholar researching the growing phenomenon of Smartphone Dependence, I realised I needed to tackle my own addiction first, so invited a friend to join me in this challenge.It was so successful at helping us refine what we - not Big Tech - want to get out of smartphone socialising, that I've continued going cold turkey once a month ever since, sometimes with other young people.I myself am now searching for the greatest modern BURNER (or just-smart-enough) phone and vlogging monthly to thousands of digital-minimalists about my experience flipping phones:2023: Light Phone IIthough 1st timers are encouraged to dig out their proper olde clamshell, if they can still get 3G on it..

    If you'd you like to join me doing your own digital detox next month, please reach out, and I'd love to support you by offering encouragement and telling your story to inspire others:

    Check out my monthly post-FirstWeek vlogs about my life for a week on the following 'modern BURNER':
