The Internet and attention spans
My monthly guest article is up at Mad Genius Club. (I'm not sure whether they regard me as mad, a genius, or the club - but I digress.) It's titled 'E-books, attention spans, and the future of reading'. In it, I discuss how the Internet appears to have shortened our attention span (there's abundant evidence for that), and how it's changed the way in which we seek, absorb and dispense information.
If the subject interests you, please click over there, read it, and leave a comment. I'm hoping to develop an online conversation on the subject.
