В книгу мы погружаемся, а в интернете тонем.

Интересный текст об изменение операционных способностей мозга из-за интернета. В том числе о сокращении длинны чтения: "I can feel it most strongly when I’m reading. Immersing myself in a book or a lengthy article used to be easy. My mind would get caught up in the narrative or the turns of the argument, and I’d spend hours strolling through long stretches of prose. That’s rarely the case anymore. Now my concentration often starts to drift after two or three pages. I get fidgety, lose the thread, begin looking for something else to do. I feel as if I’m always dragging my wayward brain back to the text. The deep reading that used to come naturally has become a struggle. "

И небольшой плагиатик там же. Автор пишет: "Once I was a scuba diver in the sea of words. Now I zip along the surface like a guy on a Jet Ski."
