I think this is an important observation for us to make and become more aware of. It’s as if we’ve removed the atmosphere and are just getting pelted with the sun’s radiation all day long. In some ways having instant access to data all over the world is great for technology, innovation, social networking, etc. But we definitely lose something along the way. I’ve started bringing books when I ride the bus to and from work and I put my phone in my backpack to avoid feeling the vibrating notifications. It’s definitely made a positive impact but there’s so much more I can do.
