What happens when everything is too easy?

“Convenience technologies promised more space in our lives for other things, like thought, reflection, and leisure.”

We have become plagued by a tyranny of tiny tasks, individually simple but collectively oppressive. And, when every task in life is easy, there remains just one profession left: multitasking.

 
 But we must take seriously our biological need to be challenged, or face the danger of evolving into creatures whose lives are more productive but also less satisfying.
