I was talking with a friend of mine the other day about generational differences. One of the things that was mentioned was that it seems to take longer for some people to go over something that our generation can do in a short amount of time. I think it’s because we were raised on sound bites, and MTV, and grabbing headlines from the internet, and ticker bars on TSN. We can process large amounts of information at a higher rate than those from previous generations.

I'm basing most of this as an observation on the people in my office, which is a very small and specific sample population. It could just be that I work with people who are long winded.

i think your observations are pretty accurate. unfortunately for kids of our generation, their ability to focus on any particular thing (besides rapid moving pictures on TV/games?) for more than a couple minutes is often quite impaired. we think we're getting "smarter" with all our technology... but i'm not convinced
