Contact Tristan Harris

Hi! Thanks for your interest to connect.

Due to overwhelming incoming requests and the Center for Humane Technology's laser-focus on changing the dangerous incentives of technology platforms — I am unable to manage my email.

For my health and sanity, I've cut down on the time I spend responding to emails to the absolute minimum. I'd love to connect, but I have to be very selective about which opportunities I accept where I can have powerful, transformative impact.

Before sending me a note, please be aware that I receive:

  • 10+ major media interview requests per week.
  • 10+ major speaking engagement inquiries per week.
  • 10+ film documentary interview requests per month.
  • 10+ major inquiries from major governments (Parliamentary committees, Congress members, etc) per month.

If you would like to invite me to a speaking opportunity, please use the form below and include the relevant details.

If you are interested in a media interview, please write:

If you are interested in jobs at the Center for Humane Technology, please do not apply here. Instead, visit our jobs page, and complete the form for the position you are interested in. If you have a referral contact, you can enter that in the application and we’ll take that into account. You may also like to connect with the Humane Technology Community discussion forums.

For anything else, please use this shortwhale system (below) and I will try to answer emails as they come but please know that if you don’t receive a response from me, it’s just a matter of too many emails and too little time.

Thanks for your help and understanding.



I get these questions a lot. Is yours among them?

Yes! See these reading resources :

Fantastic. Please submit your app or website for review here

We have put up great tips and helpful apps and extensions on the Humane Technology Take Control page.

This is a very concerning area and I recommend reading the resources offered by Common Sense Media, a non-profit dedicated to helping parents and teachers educate children about digital citizenship and use of screens. More information here:
