I’m a digital lifestyle expert. That means I spend a lot of time making tech simple for people looking for simpler, more connected lives. In all aspects of my work, I answer all kinds of technical questions for families on the run. Recently, I was chatting with an busy executive who emailed me about personal scanners. As we went back and forth about the pros and cons of each model she was considering, she suddenly blurted, “I don’t know, Carley — this tech stuff is exhausting sometimes. Is any of it going to make me happier?”
Ah, nothing like a little existential conversation to really get the wheels turning. I contemplated the question on the Manilla blog.
