Bored and Brilliant
I have to confess that Manoush Zomorodi often drives me crazy. Forgive me, but there is something about her that gets on my nerves. Sorry, Manoush.
With that totally unnecessary and negative introduction, I have to say that she is really on to something with her Bored and Brilliant project. I am struck daily by the way that people - me included - are dominated and enslaved by their digital devices, but she has done a deep dive into what the effects of our preoccupation are, and has actually come up with some skillful means to turn it around.
Give a listen to this excerpt from On the Media - a podcast that has become like religion for me because Brooke and Bob are so often digging into what really matters about the way that information is delivered in this day and age.
