“We don’t know where we get our ideas from. What we do know is that we do not get them from our laptops.”

-John Cleese

The internet is a window to the sum total of human knowledge, from calculus to cat videos.

If you’re trying to get something done, it can be completely overwhelming: your attention is scattered, rapidly jumping from one stimulus to another, without stopping to take anything in.

Sometimes, I think it’s wise to heed the advice of the incredible writer Anne Lamott, who said, “almost everything will work again if you unplug it for a few minutes – including you.”
