I want to start the first chain of coffee shops called "The Disconnected Cafe." Not because I think technology is bad but it is so hard to be disciplined about shutting it off. In my fantasy, when you walked into the cafe you would no longer be able to connect via your phone or computer. If someone needed to reach you, they would either have to stop by or call the front desk. And this coming from me, a person, who goes on 10 day retreats of silence! I am not afraid to be alone or even to disconnect but it is so hard to do in everyday life. Wisdom 2.0 by Soren Gordhamer is a simple book that has profound insight on how to integrate technology into life and work.
