Health (physical and mental) issues connected with increasing on
kbd-screen are under-explored, in my opinion. I am easily imagine what
staring for hours at a fixed radiation source, everyday for 10, 20, 30
years, will do to our eyes. I have already referred to the way
kbd-screen has ingratiated itself into my writing-thinking process.
I've had to work hard at recovering my writing-thinking skills if
there's no kbd-screen in front of me. Overdependence on mechanical
devices have led to diseases caused by lack of physical exercise. I
wonder what would result from overdependence on machines for some of
the mental work we do?
