An article in a British newspaper quotes a leading scientist as saying that social websites, such as Facebook and Twitter, are altering children’s brains… and not for the better. I sent this alarming news out to a few of our more internet savvy folks at the Press and was surprised when Denise wrote back and told me some people are giving up Facebook for Lent.
I don’t Twitter [yet] and have resisted Facebook [so far] but I started to think about what it would be like to try and give up Googling for Lent. It sent a cold shudder down my spine. Oh, dear. I’ve found another “un-freedom.”
Is there something like Google or TV that would challenge you to the max if you gave it up for Lent?
