We live in an age of accelerated information and information overload. The rate at which we receive information—and the way we receive it—have changed dramatically: from newspapers and radio and a few nightly news programs to constant news online. And when we try to stop consuming the vast amounts of info coming at us, we wrestle against a paranoia of missing important information or being out of the loop.
We are making our lives available to the world through Twitter, Facebook and Instagram. But while we have more “friends” than ever, we feel that we’re lacking real connections. Our devices can either help relationships grow or get in the way of honest relationships.
We need to become better stewards of technology and information, regularly taking rests and a Sabbath from them. It’s time to become “factivists,” using data and knowledge with effectiveness and purpose.
