Put That Thing Away -

Put That Thing Away - | Unplug | Scoop.it
What does it look like to the other person when you can't put your phone down while having a conversation? This video nails it.
craig daniels's insight:

I have mastered the raised eyebrow when someone starts staring into their phone while talking to me, but I haven't quite got the moxie to say "put that thing away."  Maybe now after watching this video I'll try it out next time someone chooses distraction over meaningful interaction... 


The video will make you smile..check it out...

What, No Instruction Manual?

What, No Instruction Manual? | Unplug | Scoop.it

"Has it really come to this? In barely one generation we’ve moved from exulting in the time-saving devices that have so expanded our lives to trying to get away from them. Often in order to make more time. The more ways we have to connect, the more many of us seem desperate to unplug. Like teenagers, we appear to have gone from knowing nothing about the world to knowing too much all but overnight.

craig daniels's insight:

Before reading this article I'd never heard of Black-Hole-Resorts. Oh sure I knew there were getaway places that had no TV or Internet, I even knew of few of them didn't allow cell phones on the grounds. But for the life of me I didn't know a term had been coined describing these quiet oasis's.


A well written and enjoyable piece that ends with an upbeat conclusion that the children of too much technology will adapt to it much better than we have, they will see nothing abnormal about shutting it off.
