I’m listening to Nicholas Carr read an excerpt from his book The Shallows. It’s very good, and I am enjoying his sincere tone on the subject. We should take a good look at how information overload is actually rewiring our brain. But think of this irony, as he is preaching the horrors of information overload to the captivated audience, half the crowd is nodding their heads in agreement, yet multi-tasking on their devices.
While I am overly wired personally, I find that I need to meditate a few times a week to keep my sanity. Carr raises some great points, and I definitely will check out his book.
