Minimize Technology to Maximize Output

Wired Magazine founder Kevin Kelly is a Jesus-follower. He's interviewed at This "geek theologian" doesn't use a smart phone and doesn't tweet. Well, I don't either. Kelly says:

"Technology can maximize our special combination of gifts, but there are so many technological choices that I could spend all my time just trying out technologies. So I minimize my technological choices in order to maximize my output. The Amish (and the hippies) are really good at minimizing technologies. That's what I am trying to do as well. I seek to find those technologies that assist me in my mission to express love and reflect God in the world, and then disregard the rest."

That's very well said. Pay attention.
