Keep your cell phone on hand—in your pocketbook, on the counter near you, wherever you want—but don’t look at it for a complete hour. Not even a peek. Not even if it rings and buzzes and pings away. Let all those calls go to voice mail, let all those texts go unread, until the hour is up.
Could you do that?
Not so easy, right?
The crazy thing is that many people are not even aware of how technology dictates their choices; how it rules their lives in so many ways.
And that is why Tech Talk, by Aliza Feder, is such a must-read.
Whether we like it or not, technology is here to stay. But that doesn’t mean our free choice is gone and that we must go with the flow of the technology-obsessed world around us. We can take a stand, have a long, hard look at technology and at what it does to us, and then decide for ourselves whether or not we will submit to the lure of the Smartphone and all that comes along with it.
In this book, that’s exactly what Malka, Sarit, Mina, Zahava, Rochel, and Mordechai did. These six brave souls kept a running journal of their use of technology and their thoughts and feelings about it, over the course of a year-and were astounded at their discoveries through their journeys. No, they weren’t throwing out their phones or cutting themselves off from society at the end of the “experiment,” yet each of them, being honest, thinking individuals, found tremendous room for growth as they explored their inner world via these journals.
You, too, can gain much inspiration and food for thought from their candidness. Written by a beloved high school teacher and magazine columnist, Tech Talk is the book of choice for all those seeking an honest take on the affect of technology in our lives.
