Værs'go: En mental kraverusker ... fra verdens mest connectede mand

Vi forsømmer dét, der er godt for alle, og søger mod det lette og bekvemme. Men convenience er fraværet af egne valg. GroupM indledte sin store NextM konference med en mental krave-rusker. De godt 1000 deltagere, hvilket er overbooket, ved GroupM's to-dages konference, NextM i Københavns Nordhavn, blev mødt med en overraskelse; en hippie som hovedtaler.

Review: ‘Dark Net’ Explores the Digital Age’s Toll on Us

The scariness of the digital age has been the peg for a number of newsmagazine segments and docu-series, many of them not going, conceptually, much beyond “Can you believe what some people are using the Internet for these days?”. “Dark Net,” an eight-part series that begins on Thursday night on Showtime, goes further, using examples of unsettling digital phenomena to ponder larger questions, like whether and how the digital age might be changing us as a species.

The mindful cyborg movement

The other night, I dropped by the 12 South Dharma Center in Nashville, TN, a few blocks from home to check out a new meditation program that was starting up. Although I have practiced meditation from time to time in my apartment or in my dorm with my roommate, this was my first time at a group session devoted to the art.
