    I started to read the article but it is much too long. Do you have a link to a one-paragraph summary of what Carr is saying?

    Seriously, it is a profound and well balanced essay. By the way, I think his analysis of Kubrick’s 2001: A Space Odyssey is right on target.

    I, too, was taken back by the length of the article. Somehow, if it were written on PAPER in front of me, I wouldn’t give it a second thought. It brought to my mind how many conversations today are centered on very short snippets of information taken from a website or a quick news story. The person speaking can’t really speak any further on the subject than what is heard on a news show. Often the background knowledge needed to really understand an issue/story requires some work on our part, and we have no time to acquire that information because we are too busy flitting on to something else.

    I appreciated the article…I thought it was just my age that was keeping me from reading lengthy material 🙂
