MANY of us start the day with coffee and connection. Like the majority of my circle, much of my life is lived on-line these days. Emails and Facebook have long been part of our daily routine and now we zoom into meetings across the day. Between working from home, staying alert and keeping in touch, our devices are 24/7 companions.
Mobiles have superseded newspapers at our breakfast tables while the laptop glares from the corner of the room with all its teeth bared.
The constant stream of communication can get daunting and distracting. A couple of weeks ago I actually ran out of emails. To celebrate I posted this comment on LinkedIn “Every editor’s dream – no unread emails – now, where’s the coffee and when does the sun come up?”
