We’re creating a culture of distraction

See on Scoop.itThings I grab here and there

A few weeks ago I gave this rough presentation on a topic called “SlowTech”. I wanted to cover three things

1. We are creating and encouraging a culture of distraction where we are increasingly disconnected from the people and events around us and increasingly unable to engage in long-form thinking. People now feel anxious when their brains are unstimulated.
2. We are losing some very important things by doing this. We threaten the key ingredients behind creativity and insight by filling up all our “gap” time with stimulation. And we inhibit real human connection when we prioritize our phones over our the people right in front of us.
3. What can we do about it? Is this path inevitable or can balance be restored?
