    “The Internet isn’t going anywhere, but if people value calmer, more contemplative thought, they need to change the way they use the technology. The goal should be to clear considerable portions of your day for working, conversing, thinking, and playing without the mediation (or the interruption) of screen technologies,” says Nicholas Carr, author of the Pulitzer Prize-nominated book, “The Shallows: What the Internet is Doing to Our Brains”.

    Carr is also a proponent of taking extensive breaks from connectivity.

    “Once you start doing that – and I would emphasize that even modest cutbacks in connectivity are difficult to pull off – I think you’ll fairly quickly begin to have a better perspective on the proper role for digital media in your life,” Carr continued in his interview in Rotman Magazine.
