The problem is, I seem to be spending way too much time these days in search of them. In an ideal world, I would sit down at my computer, do my work, and that would be that. In this world, I get entangled in surfing and an hour disappears. Twitter is an enabler for this behavior. It provides a quiet, subtle pressure to tweet frissons, and be tweeted in return.

He asked his newbies to surf the web for six days, and then he repeated the experiment: The new scans revealed that their brain activity had changed dramatically; it now resembled that of the veteran surfers. The article suggests this possibility: When we go online, we enter an environment that promotes cursory reading, hurried and distracted thinking, and superficial learning. Even as the Internet grants us easy access to vast amounts of information, it is turning us into shallower thinkers, literally changing the structure of our brain. In other words, instead of seeking substance, we’re distractedly scurrying hither and yon, seeking frisson.Read complete article and comments at site.

And now that he’s been excommunicated from the Ever More Conservative Church of the Latter Day Taint’s, I guess he’s free to be more human.I always did think he was a good writer. Same for Fund. But it’s nice to have Frum stick this finger in the eye of his fellow travelers every now and then [url=]kizjnot[/url] [link=]xurbgbxbbu[/link]
