I am sure our ancestors felt the same way when the sewing machine was invented. People thought we would lose our purpose in life with all of our free time when we moved from horses to cars and could get somewhere in ten minutes instead of all day. The refrigerator? Maybe the phone and the television too! However, although we may get our information from different places, looking it up, reading and remembering it will be no different from grabbing the old World Book Enclyclopedia to write all of those school reports.We were never lacking in information, it's what you do with what you learn that is important.

I'm thrilled to have indoor plumbing, and most of our modern conveniences. I like to read online, but don't find it difficult to read books or longer articles because of a short attention span, it's more due to time constraints. I couldn't even read the links in one sitting. (but then I was at work - shhhh)

Great analysis!!!
My kids use Facebook as a primary receptacle of their photos, but they still love curling up with the photo albums I made before I got so busy. As much as I love the ease of seeing photos online, I appreciate being able to pick up a photo album and read it with my family on the couch. Maybe someday we'll feel that way about the laptop, but we're not there yet.
