Map of Digital Distractions.

I really wish I had done this. It’s a map showing the hierarchy of digital distractions by David McCandless. At the very top of the pyramid is “Device failure” with “iPhone” underneath. At the bottom of the pyramid is “Any kind of actual work'” Brilliant.

You can see it at MoMa in New York.

Thanks to Lynda Koster for pointing this out to me.

    Thanks for the mention Richard. After reading your books Future Files and Future Minds, you popped into my head when I got to this one as well as several others. It’s an incredible exhibit. I left there with a purse full of ideas, notes and scribbles…and still processing. It definitely left me wanting to return for a second trip.
