The Hyperconnected

Lev Grossman (who once sent me a copy of his book) is always charming. On Twitter:

“It’s like the cocaine of blogging or e-mail but refined into crack. Internet addiction is an old story, but we’re on the tipping point of a new kind of problem that might more broadly be called an addiction to data, in all its many and splendiferous forms.”
