"We've effectively been living by a philosophy, albeit an unconscious one. It holds that (1) connecting via screens is good, and (2) the more you connect, the better. I call it Digital Maximalism, because the goal is maximum screen time. Few of us have decided this is a wise approach to life, but let's face it, this is how we have been living."
"Digital busyness is the enemy of depth."
"Part of what drives us back to the screen may be evolutionary programming. The human brain is wired to detect and respond to new stimuli. When we become aware of some novel event or object in our surroundings, the brain's "reward system" is activated..."
"It is not the man who has too little who is poor, but the one who hankers after more."
Definitely recommended! A snapshot of the times we are living in!
