Imagination and the Family Circus Comic

Media_httpwwwarcamaxc_jmdbh

A simple book – without graphics, without interaction – stimulates the imagination.

Can we say the same about what we read on the web?

With all the multi-tasking, technology, flash, interactive graphics, audio-visual, bite sized pieces of information, and a skip and a scan, can we really believe that the web is not dumbing us down?

Is the web dumbing down our imagination?

The solution: get off the web; stop tweeting/blogging; find a quiet place with a block of uninterrupted time, and just read a good old fashioned book.

Your imagination will thank you. Thanks Family Circus for reminding me of this.
