Follow me on Twitter


Though there’s lots of twittering about the terrible effect of the internet on our attention span (“Kids today…”), Dr. Vaughan Bell has a sobering reminder:

If you think twitter is an attention magnet, try living with an infant....The past, and for most people on the planet, the present, have never been an oasis of mental calm and creativity. And anyone who thinks they have it hard because people keep emailing them should trying bringing up a room of kids with nothing but two pairs of hands and a cooking pot.
