City Brights: Howard Rheingold : Attention literacy
"Mindfulness and norms, my students helped me see, are essential tools for those who would master the arts of attention.

The point of this story isn't to get everyone to pay attention to me or professors in general - it's that I want my students to learn that attention is a skill that must be learned, shaped, practiced; this skill must evolve if we are to evolve. The technological extension of our minds and brains by chips and nets has granted great power to billions of people, but even in the early years of always-on, it is clear to even technology enthusiasts like me that this power will certainly mislead, mesmerize and distract those who haven't learned - were never taught - how to exert some degree of mental control over our use of laptop, handheld, earbudded media."
