And so, the wireless communication and cell phones that started out to be such wonderful and liberating developments have now, in some sense, become the source of problems. The pendulum has over swung, and at least for me, has gone from making me more easily reachable to too easily reachable. The e-mails that facilitated communication are now bogging it down. To a certain degree, the smart phone has gone from making life more effortless, to making it more stressful. I am, however, taking steps to overcome this problem, some of which are already yielding improvements. Hopefully, if everyone works together in the future we can extract the best from smart phones, while limiting their potential for tyranny.
