Sometimes you can be just too techie

Couldn’t help but notice the news item that there are now support groups forming for teens that are “addicted” to Facebook at the expense of everything else.

A minor area, but one that is on my mind are all the fancy e-cards I’m receiving from colleagues. They require you to go to a link, click on the card, watch an animation, etc.

In all honesty, I watched one and decided that I just don’t have the time. Prioritizing time seems even more important now with all the ways in which the coolest latest “techie” thing comes along to suck up more time. (Reminds me of when computers first came out with word processors that gave you the capacity to change fonts, style types, etc. One study showed that there was an immediate drop in productivity as workers explored all the layout functions and features.)

So I note that a friend or colleague has sent something, and leave it at that.

Therefore, for those of you who take a few minutes to follow my blog, the simple e-card below is my simple, quick way to wish everyone Happy Holidays! (BTW—the image is from the Science Spectrum sculpture dedicated to COSI’s late CEO, Roy Shafer).
