"The Poverty of Attention"

"Google is making us stupid, multitasking is draining our souls, and the “dumbest generation” is leading us into a “dark age” of bookless “power browsing.” Adopting the Internet as the hub of our work, play, and commerce has been the intellectual equivalent of adopting corn syrup as the center of our national diet, and we’ve all become mentally obese."

With non-stopping and hyperstimulating YouTubian/Facebookian lifes, do we still have to time to stop and think?
