Too much information and too little time to digest it. Attention pulled in a thousand directions, and by the very technologies that promise to inform and connect us. Why is life speeding up and what can we do about it? How can we find greater balance and harmony?
Join a public discussion on the role of information and information technologies in our busy, fast-paced lives. Listen as local and national leaders share their views on the problems of information overload, fragmented attention, speedup, and busyness, and then add your voice to the debate about the extent of these problems, their causes, and possible solutions.
