1 Jul 6, 2010 11:57 AM Pick up the telephone, it takes less time than the back and forth of texting/email.
2 Jul 15, 2010 6:44 PM Unless it's a matter of life and death, it can wiat!
3 Jul 15, 2010 6:45 PM Use/control the device(s), don't allow then to control you. Use/control your life, don't allow life to control you. Use/control your finances, don't allow your finances to control you.
4 Jul 15, 2010 6:46 PM I am a physical book reader. If my personal/professional schedule permitted, I would be reading a book 10+ hrs a day. Mostly ROMANCE, but not completely.
5 Jul 15, 2010 6:48 PM Look at the sky as often as you can
6 Jul 15, 2010 6:49 PM Love the one's you are with (in other words, put away the one you love and interact with flesh and blood)
7 Jul 15, 2010 6:51 PM Get linked-out of Linked-In, stop being a Twit and do an about Face!
8 Jul 15, 2010 6:52 PM Actually go talk to a person - face to face. We're going to get to a point where no one has to talk to anyone and everyone will have e-friends and e-relatives.
9 Jul 15, 2010 6:52 PM Get a life!
10 Jul 15, 2010 6:52 PM Realize you are sitting on the bank of life watching things flow by, get in and swim! You are becoming a living avitar, controlled by the digital world - you only think it is the opposite.
11 Jul 15, 2010 6:53 PM Reach out and touch somebodys hand, make this world a better place if you can.
12 Jul 15, 2010 6:54 PM Find a PURPOSE for the device. Ask Clayton Christensen's central marketing question: What job are you HIRING this device or service to do?
13 Jul 15, 2010 6:58 PM Advices are dangerous present... but you must think that using a digital device only let know part of yourself not de whole person .... and sonner or latter you must show all of you. Save time face to face is better in the long run
14 Jul 15, 2010 7:01 PM GET A LIFE - use the old technology - go and talk to someone face to face
15 Jul 15, 2010 7:06 PM The real humans standing around you are more important than the digital ones in your computer or phone
16 Jul 15, 2010 7:13 PM get a life
17 Jul 15, 2010 7:13 PM Turn them off from time to time, none of you are really so important that you HAVE to be connected 24/7 and very little that is said on Facebook or Twitter is really very important or even interesting. Get out and enjoy some face to face interaction.
18 Jul 15, 2010 7:16 PM a world of information
19 Jul 15, 2010 7:22 PM learn to enjoy hearing and listening with your ears. sound of a human voice is pleasurable and infinitely more nuanced than the written word
20 Jul 15, 2010 7:23 PM Get a life with real, personal interactions. When talking with a person face to face, don't check all your digitial stuff. It can wait.
21 Jul 15, 2010 7:23 PM We are biological machines, don't lose connection to the real world around you. Nothing can replace physical sensations and human contact.
22 Jul 15, 2010 7:26 PM Talk to real people in stead of to your screen. It's harder if you're not used to it, but actually a lot more fun.
23 Jul 15, 2010 7:42 PM Use for a genuine purpose
24 Jul 15, 2010 7:52 PM Make a concsious effort to connect more with people the old-fashioned way and not through a device. And write a letter and mail it once in a while. All things in moderation.
25 Jul 15, 2010 8:01 PM Have kids
26 Jul 15, 2010 8:06 PM I do not turn on my computer on the weekends. It was a little difficult at first, but I now find it liberating. And those I work with (and friends) pretty much know I don't respond on weekends. Makes Monday's a bit crazy, but it's a good trade.
27 Jul 15, 2010 8:07 PM Get an interest that require you to leave these devices behind.
28 Jul 15, 2010 8:13 PM Take frequent walks to keep the juices moving.
29 Jul 15, 2010 8:17 PM It's less the device that I'm addicted to and more the capabilities that it enables -- information, latest news, clients updates, etc.
30 Jul 15, 2010 8:52 PM get a life!
31 Jul 15, 2010 8:55 PM At the very least, please try to chill on weekends with exercise, hard copy books/publications, TV, F2F conversation, and parties/socializing. Too much remote contact is clearly enough.
32 Jul 15, 2010 9:00 PM TURN IT OFF!!!
33 Jul 15, 2010 9:06 PM Make a point of turning it off at a certain point during your day. It is much harder if you work from home, but it will definitely help you to do so.
34 Jul 15, 2010 9:09 PM Put it down and give yourself hour long rest periods when you do something else.
35 Jul 15, 2010 11:16 PM turn it off for a set time of day or hours a day; sit down and have a meal with friends family; turn off certain connections when you are trying to get concetrated work done ( iams, phone)
36 Jul 15, 2010 11:45 PM Get up, stretch. Breathe deeply. Go outside and take a walk. Don't take your Blackberry/cell phone. Stroll along. Breathe. Feel the sun/raindrops/breeze. Look at the play of light and shadow all around you. Think about nothing. Enjoy the moment.

41 Jul 16, 2010 2:12 PM Almost all of them have an off button, try pushing that and you will realize that the world does not come to an end.
42 Jul 16, 2010 3:22 PM get a life
43 Jul 16, 2010 3:30 PM Just walk away and grab a book or a deck of cards and do things the old fashioned way.
44 Jul 16, 2010 6:10 PM Blackberry
45 Jul 16, 2010 8:00 PM Pot calling the kettle black?
46 Jul 16, 2010 8:23 PM First, admit you have a problem.
47 Jul 16, 2010 8:28 PM Find someone in your life who will hold you accountable. Take a walk on the beach, a walk in the woods. Find a quiet place to be attentive to creation and the sights and sounds there. It will restore your soul.
48 Jul 17, 2010 4:42 PM Force yourself to get away and do human things. But it's hard.
49 Jul 17, 2010 8:35 PM Get a life!
