Some notes from the book:
INTERFACE CULTURE HOW NEW TECHNOLOGY TRANSFORMS THE WAY WE CREATE AND COMMUNICATE - STEVE JOHNSON
"Guttenberg and James Joyce are both artists and engineers - only the 400 years that separated them kept their shared condition from view. But why should the connection be more feasible to us today? The answer is simple: speed."
"Technology used to advance slower, more differentiated stages. With each innovation in technology, the gap that kept the past at bay grew shorter, more attenuated. This meant little in the centuries-long increments of the book or the newspaper, but as the stages grew more abbreviated, they began to interrupt the life cycles of individual humans."
