Do Hyperlinks Make us Stupid?

Read Robert Velarde on this, he is one of the six or seven people who have read The Soul in Cyberspace.

Thanks for the link to my post about the evils of links. :-) They are not all bad, as I note.

For those who have not read The Soul in Cyberspace, I highly recommend it as a thoughtful critique of the online world with some thoughtful Pascal quotes thrown in - what else could one ask for in such a book?

Hey Doug (no-- scratch that; doesn't sound right

Dear Dr Groothuis (there, that's better; a little gravitas and decorum never hurt-- even in cyberspace)

I read the Soul in Cyberspace shortly after it came out (about ten years ago). It was very prescient. I'm going to have to re-read it now....
