Thanks! I disagree with one of those: the ability to ignore people. Many smartphone owners use the Internet as a way to look for minutes at their smartphones and thereby to ignore people in their presence. So, I’d argue that smartphone users, at least, have NOT lost the ability to ignore people.
I recently read Digital Minimalism: Choosing a Focused Life in a Noisy World by Cal Newport and I found it very interesting! Another one I really liked it’s called “Cronofagia”, but it’s only in Italian I think
Thanks for the suggestion. I’ll get one soon because I’m curious about how the author could only write ten arguments. I have an extensive list of them, including bizarre ones. Perhaps, the most important I would mention is how refreshing it is to find out who really cares about you.
Thank you, @urszula. I’m sure it will be one more great resource for the 100+ bibliography I’m researching for the book I’m writing about the Social (Human) Animal, whose matrix will be an article I wrote 13 years ago and a slight update two years ago about the “virtual” world.
