Texting while walking

.
NYC pedestrian fatalities are up from last year, most likely due to txting while walking according to a NYTimes article. If you're going to txt while you walk irregardless of the dangers inherently involved, at least keep the phone up at eye level in order to improve peripheral vision. It may just save your life.

  1. Hello,

    I couldn't find another way to contact you, so apologies for having to post a comment!

    I'm writing from the Institute of Art and Ideas (IaI) because I think you might be interested in one of our latest videos: a talk by Raymond Tallis on neuroscience and music. The talk took place at the HowTheLightGetsIn festival this summer, and sees Tallis discuss whether or not neuroscience can reveal the purpose of art and music or whether this is beyond current science.

    You can find the talk, Neuroscience and the Mystery of Music, here along with an embed code. If you choose to share this video with your readers you can either link to it or embed it - but we only ask that if you embed the video you also include a link to our site - either to the video page, or the homepage (http://iai.tv).

    Yours sincerely,
    Dominic Preston
