A multi-front war

“Have you noticed how fragmented your attention has become? Have you noticed how hard it is to sit down and read a book for an hour? When was the last time you read a book for an hour, without checking your email or social media? There is a multi-front war being fought for our attention, and most of us are losing it. Have you seen the people staggering around with their smartphones, even crossing the street while texting? Literally stepping in front of traffic without looking up. Have you seen parents around their kids, visibly tethered to this digital leash? Are you one of these parents?” – Sam Harris, Waking Up App
