Fabulous - an essential piece. I catch myself at times, standing on the bus or the subway, looking around myself at my fellow straphangers, over 90% of whom are glued to their screens. Seems like I could stand naked in the middle of the aisle and nobody would notice. Our age old human practice of of idle gazing at nothing in particular is passing away with the flood of technology distractions.

I’m trying to the stem the tide with my 11 year old son, who gets almost panicky if he doesn’t have something to do or a screen to look at. “Get out of the house, ride your bike, do nothing!”
