Digital Media

Posted by Michael Patterson on November 19, 2014 at 11:35 PM

As a computer scientist the digital world is part of my real world. At least thats what I tell myself. The articles in the reading were very relevant to me. As a computer person, they immediately put me on the defensive. After reading them with forced humility, I found very valid points in them. One being: “Do you find yourself checking the same sites repeatedly within a short period of time”. Admittedly, Yes, too often. I’ve always held the position that digital media is okay as long as it never impedes whats really important. I feel I’ve done pretty good on that, but that doesn’t mean I can’t improve. I think its important to constantly reevaluate and set new goals. I think a digital sabbath once a while could be a good one.

Yes, a good balance is very important. I really connected with the point that talked about setting aside enough time for the things that are really important. Technology by itself is not really important at all. It is what it allows us to do.

I really like the idea of a digital fast. It would be difficult at certain times because we may need to remain connected with people but it will be a good thing otherwise.

This is quite true. If it comes to the point where one has a hard time having a "digital sabbath", it is definitely time to re-evaluate.

I agree that digital fasts are very helpful. Whenever I take one, I'm better able to prioritize my use of digital media. I realize just how much time I waste, and how much I can accomplish without the distraction.
