Why we need to unplug from time to time, and why reading on paper is vastly superior to reading off, yuck, screens. You call this reading? No way.
The Angry Luddiite has a hunch that reading on screens via pixels or E Ink
should\not be called reading per se, but "screening" -- a new term he
has coined for what we do on screens when
we read, as you are doing here. TAL says you are not reading this
post but screening it.
Agree or disagree? He also has a hunch, unproven of course, that
future MRI and PET scan tests on the brain will show that different
parts of the brain light up when we read on paper compared to when we
read off screens, and TAL says paper reading is superior compared to
screen-reading for three major things: information processing, memory
and analysis. Of course, TAL admits he might be wrong. What's your
take on all this?
