Hi there sapiens,
On Monday, we launched paid subscriptions, and I’ve been totally blown away by the response. Thank you so, so much to the many of you who’ve already subscribed. Your generosity, kind comments, and encouraging emails were a reminder of why I love doing this thing so much.
Seriously, you all are the best.

Love this newsletter, thank you for bringing joy to my monday mornings!
I am a K-12 tech educator and I do a lot of parent education workshops and your newsletter was the absolute pot of GOLD that I had been searching for! Data driven but pragmatic and fun. Realistic and relatable but grounded in science. No scare tactics or hand wringing! It's a rare occasion that I don't forward your newsletter to at least one other educator or parent when it arrives in my inbox. Thank you SO MUCH for sharing your expertise and ideas with the world!
I came for the content, but I stay for the footnotes.
I feel like your newsletter is my holy grail! There is so little out there about teens and tech that isn't meant to shock for clicks and every parent that I talk to feels like they are losing a battle with screens. Your work is so helpful! I don't pay for any substack content and I'm subscribed to at least 10 newsletters. Yours is the first that I would happily pay for, it's that good. Thank you!
Thank you!! This is not easy stuff to navigate as a parent and your work helps us a great deal.
I really enjoy your newsletter; it is exactly the right combination of chatty and informative. I have several about older kids saved in a gmail folder called "save to read again." Thank you for all of the hard work, time, effort and mental energy you clearly put into this.
So so so happy for you! Techno Sapiens is awesome, and I always recommend it to family, friends, and patients! Keep doing you. <3
I absolutely dig the perspective on research you provide. You do so well to not just regurgitate a study, but rather provide context and real world situations that are applicable + counterpoints to conclusions made from the study. It’s all wonderful and helps me as a dad, immensely. Thank you.
Thanks for all the effort you have put into this newsletter. It has very much helped my family and me navigate our relationship with technology in a more nuanced manner.
I am obsessed with the content you create!! You are personable and real and technology is my absolute favorite topic.
I consume a relatively large amount of parenting-related info, and I love reading yours in particular because of your humor-infused approach to presenting research and weaving in personal stories. Thank you!! I always have a few chuckles while reading your newsletter (while also trying to pretend I'm reading work emails) and it brightens my day!
So funny. So poignant. So thought-provoking. I love all of your newsletters! Thanks for the time you put into making these things so awesome.
As a newish parent I still feel like everything else is on hold and keeping the child alive is sole focus. Help :) But your newsletter helps me reconnect with research, academia etc., things that have always been a huge part of my life. Thanks!
Thank you for the validation I needed. The guilt is real, especially with screen time. This newsletter really helped remove the scary narrative associated with screens and provided quality, evidence based suggestions. Very helpful for me, thank you!
Very relevant and timely. Good, easy-to-do practical tips.
Love your writing style and your distillation of research into succinct, easily understandable summaries.
Loads of interesting facts. I love when I’ve read an article and then immediately want to go discuss it with people and tell them all the cool stuff I’ve just learned
Your newsletter is wonderful, your footnotes are incredible, and I have never had someone so accurately describe the odd and somewhat unsettling stasis of maternity leave that feels a bit Midlife Crisis-esque. Medium Well is a terrible name, Techno Sapiens is a brilliant name, and you are a fantastic and engaging writer. Thanks for doing what you do. [note: Medium Well is the name I almost gave to this newsletter. Don’t ask me why.]
Well-written, humorous, clever, well-researched, grounded in science.
I love the style of writing: clear & accessible, funny & lighthearted, informative & realistic. Thank you for investing your time in this invaluable resource.
