Imagination and the Family Circus ComicPosted: October 12, 2010
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.
