In today’s Device Squad, the podcast for the mobile enterprise from Propelics, Steve talks with Jim Forrest, Creative Innovation Director at Intrepid – an Accenture studio.

A super-talented designer/musician, and all-around brilliant human, Jim recently moved his family from Somerville, MA to Copenhagen, Denmark to pursue a career with Accenture—and quickly discovered a better way of life. He also has this crazy-genius idea about shutting off the internet. Find out why he feels this way, and why life is so much better in Denmark.

This episode also discusses:

  • Finding design inspiration
  • Developing a family manifesto for healthier internet habits
  • Creating social change for healthier device usage through education (and how Apple can help)
  • The benefits of a notification manager and granular, app-specific control
  • The kid’s iPhone Apple needs to build
