Lions Roar : May 2013
SHAMBHALA SUN MAY 2013 65 by looking at what has become accepted behav- ior in the past few years. Do you remember when people talking out loud on a street were labeled crazy, when intense, emotional conversations were held in subdued voices in private places? Do you remember having time to think with colleagues and family to work out problems, rather than exchang- ing rapid-fire texts? When you used to walk into a colleague’s office to ask a question rather than fire off an email? When you enjoyed taking time for conversation rather than rushing to get the infor- mation you need right now? How many times have you been distracted as you’ve read this article? This is evidence of how the ecosystem of inter- ruption technologies is reshaping culture. We might still value curiosity, contemplation, privacy, conversation, and teamwork, but are these values visible in our day-to-day behaviors? The contradic- tion between what we value and how we behave doesn’t mean we’re hypocrites. It simply shows that technology has taken over, as it always does. Right now, you may want to call my attention to all the wonderful benefits of the Internet—it’s a revo- lutionary technology that makes you not only more efficient but also more effective. I agree with you. I couldn’t do my work or write a book without search engines, e-books, and email exchanges, and I couldn’t stay connected to my family when I’m traveling. However, we have to focus beyond the content, as beneficial as it is.

Donning head- phones, they immerse themselves in World of Warcraft and other pop- ular electronic games.
