Screen time: When the world is flat

While we can explore a wealth of material from our computers, we should seriously reconsider how much time we spend on them at home, in the office, and on the go for work, for correspondence, and for play. We don’t have to give up our screens entirely, but we should make sure the time we spend on them isn’t just for lack of something better to do. After all, we each have more than one eye for a reason. The world was not meant to be flat.
