I just read Matt Richtel’s great article in the NY Times called “Hooked on Gadgets, and Paying a Mental Price”
I wonder how many photographers–myself included–realize the neurological effects of adding yet another gadget or media feed into our lives? How much does our gadget-encrusted lifestyle affect our ability to finish projects that necessitate long, focused, and repetitve actions to achieve success e.g. implementing marketing plans?
And I also wonder about the global picture: What will the world look like when a huge percentage of the entire planet’s population is filled with super multi-taskers who have little or no ability to be fully connected in the present moment with a fellow human being.
Hmmmm…..maybe I will wait on get that iPad.
