A few months ago, I was privileged to be at the Laity Lodge Consultation on Technology - March 2011. Rosie Perera just posted this set of photos on Flickr.

I attend a lot of incredible retreats at Laity Lodge, but this was hands down one of the best. Eugene Peterson is always great, but Borgmann challenged me to think in ways that I could not have imagined--so that my family now engages regularly in focal practices (like walking to school, playing board games, etc.) We have even tried to create some focal practices around technology, too, sharing movie night, watching youtube videos together, and working on Lego stop motion movies with their ipods.

You can hear all of the talks from this retreat at the Laity Lodge website. I highly recommend them, but at least listen to the panel.
