Very nice post, Congrats!

Since the new kind of being called "collective mind" should be taking care of it needs to be tought to practice meditation in order to be balanced, compassionate, and wise. But specially knowing to be where you are in the present time. Live your life in the present time.

Thanks Mariana.

There's a strange paradox in all of this ...
The more time I spend at the computer
the more connected I am to this new endless now
but the more time I spend looking at a computer screen
the more disconnected I feel from the now of meditation, yoga, drugs etc. ..

Maybe the next generation of tangible interfaces and ambient information systems will help unite these two nows.

I agree with what you say here, you have very interesting and thought provoking words. Last comment reminds me of the following: Twitter can help you stop interacting with other people and look like a popular person at the same time.
I also checked your blog which I found really interesting, and saw very interesting posts you wrote regarding this subject like in this page.

This discussion of the now ties in well with a process I have been exploring lately which I like to call Immediated Autodocumentary.
