Mark Zuckerberg may have discovered the book but Facebook – and the rest of the web – is the enemy of deep thought

'------------------------------------------------------------------------------

For anyone who wants to write a book, however, the internet is probably the greatest enemy to attention and concentrated thought, both for the writer and potential readers. It works in partnership with the mind – trained during years of internet use – not be able to concentrate on any one thing for more than 90 seconds.

 

The cost of this butterfly attention span is creativity. There is no space and time among the constant digestion of competing stories, picture, videos, messages and emails. For every instructional video and the remarkable luxury of real-time global instant messaging, there is, on a bad day, a thousand punchlines, a thousand cannibal comment threads, an endless river of pouting, over made-up selfies all demanding your attention and once they have it, they send it off elsewhere.
