iBrain and from Homer to Twitter

Today on Black Gate I get a bit rambling. Some of it is about a book I read two months ago, iBrain: Surviving the Technological Alteration of the Modern Mind. Some of it has to do with Homer (the poet, not Simpson). And some of it is connected to the death of certain pop-star on the 25th of June. I do like to melange in my posts sometimes, and considering that iBrain is often about the lack of focus we develop because multi-tasking, perhaps that’s weirdly appropriate.

Go ahead and read the post. But I also advise reading a good book as well. (I have problems with iBrain, as you’ll read about in the post, but I still think there’s much worthwhile inside it.)
