I gave a talk a while ago on Consciousness and Managing Information Overload. One of the tips was to be Mindfull Technology Fasting. This included not having phones when going on walks, phone stacking when at dinner (all phones get put into middle of table and OFF) Dr H Levy of Washingtons University IT division  – had students restrict their technology intake for a period of three days – tools such as phone stacking when meeting friends, less texting – you get my drift. After this surprise, surprise they said that found themselves being more engaged in the world, connected with people around them. Most of the strife that we experience with one another is because of a lack of REAL communication, face to face interaction, info fasting brings to a closer manner of inter acting with your world. Makes you think...
