No major change in human society has ever been possible. There is always anxiety, sometimes even panic. And there is growing pain.

Jake is a busy guy. Every time he starts a project, or just thinks about starting something, he gets interrupted. Most of the time they’re annoying minor interruptions: phone calls, a knock at the door, text messages from work, the list goes on and on.
