We are a scanning culture. We love to pick up our phones and breeze down a list of headlines or flip through a bunch of selfies, but rarely do we take the time to look deeper at what we're seeing. We scan.
And hey, I'm guilty of it too. I don't want to get too involved in my phone before bed, but I do want some kind of distraction. But when you look beyond the surface, you can see cool things, so it is worth slowing down just a bit, just enough to get the backstory.
