I switch on the laptop to complete an urgent task. Pop … there are 14 notifications on the right side. It takes a few seconds to close them. It’s the phone now. I have not opened the document as yet. Another notification from a social media site, and I know that I have to switch off the contraption, before I get fully sucked into the vortex.
The bell that always rings is ignored. It is the boy who cried Wolf, decades ago…
We have reached the age of anti-notifications, if you want to be noticed and appreciated.
