Joe Kraus culture of distraction

Fascinating article I'd like to share. From Joe Kraus's blog:

We're creating a culture of distraction

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

-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.

-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.

-What can we do about it? Is this path inevitable or can balance be restored?

please have a look at the original post and short video (15 min) on Joe Krau's blog. It's really worth. 💡
