Note to Self’s ‘Infomagical’ Kick-Off

Sunday May 26 2024 • 7:42am - 7:42am ET

Manoush Zomorodi, host of Note to Self, launches the Infomagical series in The Greene Space

For the third January in a row, Note to Self took over The Greene Space to help us all launch a better new year.

This time the team debuted their latest interactive project, Infomagical, an audience engagement and podcast series that looks at the consequences of FOMO (fear of missing out) and information overload on our brains, our relationships and our ability to generate new ideas.

Through interactive challenges and interviews with experts, Infomagical will help participants experiment with ways to regulate their information diet, find focus and discover the magic of clearer thinking.

Host Manoush Zomorodi and her special guests joined us for a lively, fun and interactive kick-off to the project on January 20, 2016. She was joined by cognitive neuroscientist Daphna Shohamy, an associate professor of psychology at Columbia University, and Magician Escape Artist Adam Cardone. Be prepared to do some self-experimentation that will get you questioning your gadgets, your habits, and your brain.
