From Martha Stewart:
The internet is responsible for our short-term mindset.I am convinced of it. We think with our thumbs instead of our minds. It’s very damaging. When the internet started, I thought it was this extraordinary thing to save time, which is always what I want, because that then makes time: to create, to plant trees. But it has been just the opposite! It has become an all-consuming passion.
It's always easy, reassuring and popular to blame the internet for our own shortcomings.
