Smartphone addiction

constant escape

winter withered, warm
When I was doing a lot of driving, I just had to use my laptop to see where I was going, then perhaps make a few notes. But it did keep me more aware as I was driving, better able to form mental maps and whatnot.

edit: use my laptop beforehand, that is

i'll just look up where i have to be before i leave and memorize it. when you're close you can always ask around. the idea anyway is that in time you'll brain evolve into superbrain and you won't need gps any more.

Do you think its because such practices are being adopted by neoliberalism, in general? Like its proven to be a robust means of communication, and thus ought to be used for work and not just play? And that is when it becomes compulsory?

edit: communication, in the interest of optimized practice, most generally.
a bit late replying to this but 100%. We have an internal social media forum which was described upon launch as "like Facebook, but work!" It is abysmal. Managers are expected to post statuses celebrating employees minor successes and achievements so other managers can go on and hit Like and leave comments and gifs. As a manager I don't have time to load up a screen and type out a seemingly heartfelt message thanking Stacy for her contribution for people who don't know Stacy to see. As an employee I'd rather just have a quick and sincere "thanks for that I appreciate it" when the task is done. It's a digital solution for a problem nobody ever had. It's getting phased out, after four years, thankfully, they realised that our predominantly young, part-time workforce wouldn't even spend time on Actual Facebook these days.

so i'm on this dumbphone for two days now and one of my friends honestly thought i had died in a traffic accident cos i didn't show up as "online" any more.
Yeah it seems like this is the kind of hypersensitive response one will increasingly receive if they decide to opt out of the highway.
