Digital Detox

Today’s edition of The New York Times contains a great essay on digital detox. It notes “Mindy Weiss, a party planner in New York and Los Angeles who specializes in celebrity events, said cellphone bans are becoming a new normal “on the high-profile end.” She advises hosts to explain the cellphone rules in the invitation, have clear signs at the party and, when possible, carve out a special area for important calls — like a smoking area for those who need to check in with the baby sitter.” It also contains several strategies for making less time for cell phones and more time for the people you are with.
