What Happened to Downtime?

Pithy, useful, and direct, Scott Balsky's "What Happened to Downtime?" is recommended reading. Here's a quote:
"Why do we give up our sacred space so easily? Because space is scary. During these temporary voids of distraction, our minds return to the uncertainty and fears that plague all of us. To escape this chasm of self-doubt and unanswered questions, you tune into all of the activity and data for reassurance... Knowing that we cannot rely on spaces that force us to unplug to survive much longer, we must be proactive in creating these spaces for ourselves. "
