Uppföljning på en krönika jag skrev för Biblioteksbladet, om Alex Soojung-Kim Pang och hans idéer om “contemplative computing”:

En längre, något moraliserande och med några gryn skräp-neurovetenskap inkastade, artikel i The Guardian om “calming technology”, “the slow web” eller “conscious computing”.

Such are the annoying ironies of work and play in the 21st century: more and more of us are “knowledge workers”, doing jobs that require deep concentration, yet we do so on machines that seem deliberately designed to interrupt us all the time and to keep us on edge. Then, in the evenings, we try to relax using similar machines, which all too often whip us up into a state that isn’t relaxing at all.
