Wow... what I'm seeing is that technology really exacerbates what the Buddhists call the "monkey mind" - forever swinging from one subject to another, never satisfied, constantly grasping and seeking some new stimulus. I highly recommend spending at least a FEW minutes everyday completely unplugged. As in meditation. My experience has been that I'm more focused and productive and can connect the dots in much more efficient and inspired ways. There are many forms of meditation and, though I'm not a full-on Buddhist, the Theravaden tradition of Mindfullness seems to be most effective - especially if you're not looking to "tune out" but be more "mindful", i.e, effectively aware.
