“In our almost complete transition to a digital culture we are changing in ways we never realized would be the unintended collateral consequences of the greatest explosion of creativity, invention and discovery in our history.” (Wolf, p. 3)

“The digital chain that leads from the proliferation of information to the gruel-thin, eye-byte servings consumed daily by many of us will need more than societal vigilance, lest the quality of our attention and memory, the perception of beauty and recognition of truth, and the complex decision-making capacities based on all of these atrophy along the way.” (Wolf, pp. 85-86)
