Too long, didn’t read – how reading online is hurting our brains

I listened to this excellent interview and discussion this past Sunday. I hope you will find it as thought provoking as I do.

“Research shows the internet is shortening our attention span, harming memory, creativity, wisdom and the capacity for empathy and critical thinking. Michael’s guest is Maryanne Wolf, John DiBiaggio Professor of Citizenship and Public Service at Tufts University. Her new book is Come Home: The Reading Brain in the Digital World.
