Hyper time, hyper activities

Tim Weber reports from the recent World Economic Forum at Davos upon the high usage of smart phones during the Davos’ sessions. The Hyper-connectivity is an undoubted reality and the question is how people will be able to deal with myriads of info and their great challenges.

‘….in nearly every session at least a dozen participants surreptitiously or openly use their smartphones, laptops or tablets…’

The report also sets the question whether the learning process requires full devotion to the subject studied, full concentration and uninterrupted mind-organisation. I still remember my father being bothered by my brother any time the latest was reading a book or doing his homework by listening to the radio at the same time.  ‘You cant’ do that …’ my father used to say…’…you have to do either the one or the other…’. What my father would actually say now when reading a newspaper, tweeting and checking your inbox can be activities that can take place almost synchronously?? The era of Hyper-time has come!
