Distraction Addiction – Alex Pang

“Rather than being forced into a state of perpetual distraction, with all the unhappiness and discontent such a state creates, we can approach information technologies in a way that is mindful and nearly effortless and that contributes to our ability to focus, be creative, and be happy.

“It’s an approach I call contemplative computing.

“The term sounds oxymoronic. What could be less contemplative than today’s technology-intensive environment? What could possibly be less conducive to a clear, meditative state than interactions with computers, cell phones, Facebook, and Twitter?

“Contemplative computing isn’t enabled by a technological breakthrough or scientific discovery. You don’t buy it. You do it.”
