Internet gets the brain thinking short term

Research increasingly suggests that one of the prices paid for the convenience of the Internet is a fundamental change in the way the brain operates. "Hypermedia"
skimming, skipping and clicking is redirecting the brain's energy to short-term thinking and away from a deeper, long-term process. "Only by combining data stored deep within our brains can we forge new ideas,"
The Economist notes. "No amount of magpie assemblage can compensate for this slow, synthetic creativity."

The Economist

Its not the data you look at, its the information you get from studying that data.
This takes contemplation...think about it!
