Speeding up

"Within a single generation, digital media and the World Wide Web have transformed virtually every aspect of modern culture, from the way we learn and work to the ways in which we socialize and even conduct war. But is the technology moving faster than we can adapt to it? And is our 24/7 wired world causing us to lose as much as we've gained?"

This is a quote from the introduction to a Frontline series. Frontline is an American documentaries programme (PBS) which offers several of their documentaries online. One of them is "Digital Nation - Life on the Virtual Frontier" which I highly recommend to watch. One of its chapters focuses on multitasking, another one on education, very interesting. It's definitely worth the 90 minutes.
Just to think about:
"The world has sped up in a lot of ways but education hasn't."
