My Phone is not so Smart Anymore

In an effort to save a bit of money each month and to attack the information crutch I have come to rely on, I have moved to a non-data phone. No more checking emails and twitter from bed, or the car or the plane or anywhere I don’t have my computer for that matter.

I love technology and I love information but there comes a point where we are taking in more than is beneficial and I think dwelt in that place for too long. While I want to interact with information with good intent, I don’t want that interaction to distract me from the things in life I need to be paying attention to.

So now I have an extra $30 in my pocket and some breathing room in a culture that doesn’t allow for much!

Over the next few months I imagine I will realize more of this type of change and it excites me to think through what life can be like…
