  1. This man is a 90 second commercial for drool-cups for scientists.

  2. Yes, I can’t wait until the day where I can have a conversation with someone, without the burden of actually having to have a conversation.

    The future is going to suck.

  3. All jokes aside, if you’re interested in how our media environment has really changed how we think over the last 20 to 30 years, you should really check out Steven Johnson’s book “Everything Bad is Good For You”. (http://www.amazon.com/Everything-Bad-Good-You-Actually/dp/1573223077) I just read it and it blew my mind.

  4. Ok, so there is more activity in some areas of the brain for “net savvy” individuals while on the internet (“on google”)… is that necessarily better than the other / fewer areas lighting up while reading ? We don’t even know what areas these are (and therefore what that means).

  5. My so-called “net savvy” brain is telling me they should have Googled the spelling of ‘savvy’ at 0:53 ;)
