You and Your Phone are Boring


The Papercuts Library #6

This isn’t the book you wanted, but is it the book you need?

If you’ve ever thought your phone might be getting the better of you, and even more so if you haven’t, #6 is a showcase of all the ways in which you and your phone might be boring your way through the very fabric of our society.

Though screen time and privacy are touched on, this isn’t the usual blah, blah, blah about the problem of smartphones.

#6 really has nothing to do with phones, it’s about what we aren’t doing because of them.

And while there are two sides to this story,  you can deal with your private issues privately, as part of your practice with not making such a scene with your phone in public all the time…


They say you never forget how to ride a bike, but somehow our phones seem to be making us forget how to walk…


And for something you are staring so intently at, what is it all for?


So, maybe you need this book, or maybe you and everyone you know do.

Otherwise, how will we stop the madness if we are too busy looking at our phones?

You might not want to hear it, but look around, … doesn’t it seem like something has gone horribly wrong?

The idea here is that our phones might be at the heart of the trouble…

This is an embarrassingly light and non-exhaustive set of links regarding privacy, but the point has long ago been proven on this front, not to mention being pretty obvious with any thought on the subject at all.
