Last Night's Listening

The "Digital Overload" episode of Fresh Air was only so-so. A much better interview is with Hamlet's Blackberry's William Powers on the Diane Rehm show. Brains need breaks; brains can't multitask; the more information we consume, the weaker our memory becomes; obsessive checking of e-mail and devices because "something really good might be there this time" is an addiction, etc. etc. I'm 13th in the library queue for the book.
