Clearly web has been bad at the “quality of intake” in the past 25 years even though what we lose by shortening our attention span, the web makes up for it with access to a seemingly unlimited resource of content. Line-tracking is one of the awesome qualities of a physical book that helps the reader stay on course.

We are hardly reading anything online with intent other than headlines or gist or tldr; at best.

Everything is packaged into quick short lines killing critical thinking and attention span both.
