Age of Chatter, Not Information
"Tell me if you do this: start walking somewhere, take out the smartphone, check email, check Facebook, check Twitter, put the phone back in your pocket, take it out a minute later, repeat. I do this, and so do a lot of people. Combine this lack of self-control with increasingly frequent updates, and you have a recipe for senseless distraction. These are updates, not information... Technology isn’t going to solve this. Setting up better electronic filters won’t keep this out... If we really want the Information Age rather than the Chatter Age, there’s only one solution: relearn self-control."
