More on combating digital compulsions

Following up on my post from the other day about Professor Cal Newport and his blog devoted to "attention advocacy," below is a related article from the New York Times on the growing call to people everywhere to "remove every piece of digital interaction that [isn't] critical to their work and lives." Very sound advice that every law prof should follow by banning digital devices from the classroom unless they're being put to a class related use because attention is a bona fide skill we should be cultivating in our students, not undermining.
