Default Watching two women tear each other's hair out... vs watching the stars...

Hi Robert,

Thanks for your post...

Of course, many things have changed since Sowpub started...

This forum is good for more extended discussion...

A lot of the attention nowadays has been taken by places like Facebook and Twitter.

Twitter is not a place for extended discussion... It even limits you to 140 characters! It's very hard to explain anything in depth there...

It's very well suited for insulting each other, though.

Facebook rewards you for posting pictures and videos. They generally don't like pure text...

I believe attention spans have been shrinking for many decades now. Twitter and Facebook are great for short attention spans...

I play the game there too! (I am on Twitter and Facebook...)

But it also has its limitations...

However, these short "hits" on Facebook and Twitter give you a quick dopamine "buzz" and gets you addicted!

I see it (to put it in historical terms) as being like the difference between watching Jerry Springer, vs. Carl Sagan...

Seeing two women tearing each other's hair out on "The Jerry Springer Show" can be more entertaining (for a quick dopamine hit) than learning about the billions and billions of stars on "Cosmos"...

Best wishes,

Dien
