Concentratus interruptus [article]

Don Marti collects his, & others’, thoughts on the subject of being constantly interrupted by mails & notifications & phones & other gizmos. Almost like, as he quotes Kurt Vonnegut’s 1961 story, Harrison Bergeron, ” George, while his intelligence was way above normal, had a little mental handicap radio in his ear. He was required by law to wear it at all times. It was tuned to a government transmitter. Every twenty seconds or so, the transmitter would send out some sharp noise to keep people like George from taking unfair advantage of their brains.”  Notifications and Interruptions: out of style?
