Cal Newport - Digital Minimalism: Choosing a Focused Life in a Noisy World

Upcoming Event
Saturday, February 9, 2019 - 3:30pm to 4:30pm

A frequent commentator on productivity and technology, Newport drew attention with his radical proposition that unbroken attention yields a more valuable output in the workplace than constant electronic busy-ness. His new book follows up that idea with advice for reducing technology in personal life. Using historical examples and modern case studies, Newport, who teaches computer science at Georgetown and runs the Study Hacks website, demonstrates that we can feel better about ourselves and how we spend our time if we take control over our use of digital devices. This doesn’t mean rejecting technology, but setting limits, and Newport lays out a strategy for intentional use, details a decluttering process, considers the value of analog hobbies, and gives insight from the “attention underground” that’s actively resisting the growing power of big tech companies.
