Studies Say Technology Basically Frying Our Brains

There is a major piece in today's New York Times detailing scientific studies that say our love affair with instant information technology is befuddling our brains, resulting is a wide range of mental afflictions.

Here's a link to the article. The story can be deeply disturbing for many reasons, not the least of which is the realization that this may mean you, a family member or a close friend. I'm betting we all know someone impacted by this flood of information that has outpaced the ability of our brain to process.

As sidebars, there are opportunities to test your own ability to focus. I did really well on one; the other? Not so much.

Time to sit down and write a couple of letters.
