I hope not... if it's true, you are going to have a very very small response level.
The internet is a breeding ground for people who desire immediate gratification, now now now. I don't think this is a negative thing, and it
wouldn't shatter attention spans.
Then again, if people come across something that they would rather not deal with... CLICK... it's gone!
On the opposite side, you have the researchers and scholars... the people who see the internet as a wealth of information. Again, no reduced
attention spans, as we are constantly reading and studying and making comparisons.
The only thing I have noticed with the internet is how it makes addicts out of some. Their whole lives revolve around their computers and modems.
How in the heck did our grandparents ever meet? How did we survive by going to the library?
The internet, if anything, creates this false world that draws in kids (20s on down), that makes it difficult for them to associate with real people
in real life.
