From The End of Patience by David Shenk…

“As we go to higher info altitudes, where the information moves faster… our eyes, ears, and cerebral cortexes have more to keep up with.  We do keep up, but in order to do so we habituate ourselves to shorter moments of concentration… and to a manic routine of ‘multitasking’ which so often leads to half-baked ideas and performance. We lose quiet moments, moments of reflection.”
