ADHD and the relentless internet - is there a connection? — The internet might make you feel hyperactive, but do you really have attention deficit hyperactivity disorder? Michael Pietrus PsyD, coordinator of the ADHD assessment protocol at the University of Chicago, explains how the internet encourages behaviour that at least mimics ADHD, and can exacerbate the condition in people who have it already.

Wired women: the $3tn women powering China's tech boom — "Women hold up half the sky," Chairman Mao once said. In the Chinese digital economy the same is true, with a newly empowered middle class of wealthy, well educated women who live and breathe social media and online shopping, spending $3tn annually in China alone.

How Frank Lloyd Wright lives on in digital design — Frank Lloyd's Wright's design principles of form and function are just as relevant today, Kent Eisenhuth believes. Google's interaction designer explained to an audience at the SXSW festival in Austin, Texas, how Lloyd Wright had reacted against the ostentatious Victorian design sensibilities that dominated when he started his career.

From virtual sex to ‘mind farms’ - here’s what we discovered at SXSW — Twenty-one years ago, film and interactive technology exhibitions were added to the South by South West music festival, which had been running since 1987. Every year, detractors accuse the festival of selling out, of being too dominated by brands, and yet every year it gets bigger, busier and even more eclectic.

'iPhone set to struggle' — Apple's much-anticipated iPhone, which goes on sale in the US today, will struggle to break into the mainstream because of a lack of a 3G connection and low demand for converged devices, according to research. International research conducted by media agency Universal McCann has concluded that Apple's goal of selling 10m iPhones by the end of 2008 is too ambitious.

Apple Watch launch - live — Live coverage as Apple chief executive Tim Cook launches the Apple Watch at the Yerba Buena Center in San Francisco. But is a new MacBook Air or rebranded Beats Music also on the cards?

A digital public space is Britain’s missing national institution — A cynic might say that we have the internet we deserve. We were promised a democratic platform for change, for equality, for collaboration, yet are faced with a reality of weary cynicism, as author Charles Leadbeater wrote last summer, and an assumption that we cannot trust any organisation with our personal data.

Do we have the right to be forgotten online? — This week on the podcast presented by Aleks Krotoski we are joined by the Guardian's head of technology Jemima Kiss and a new addition to the tech team, Julia Powles who is a researcher in law and technology at the University of Cambridge.

We need an internet that leaves space in our heads to enjoy creative peace — I was sitting on my own in the room I had for the week, looking out over a steep Spanish hillside of almond blossom and holm oak and olive trees. It was sunny but cold, and I sat at the table with a large cup of tea and a blanket over my legs.

Just a Minute - Medium — Media criticism when everyone is a critic Greetings, earthlings. We are writing to you from a distant planet called Medialand, a meta place where people write about people who write about what people are writing about. It can be a silly place, but an endlessly interesting one that occasionally has profound effects on the world.
