Interesting quote found on quitfacebook... "Our brains are no match for our technology". But our technology is a direct result of our brains. So, put it very simply, is it matching when we do good things with it and not matching when we do bad things? Any thoughts?
It's funny that you mention that. I think part of my attraction to the idea of a "text only" social media site is due to the fact that the presence of image or video content somehow drowns out my attention with regard to the text content of sites. One trick that I've discovered is that when browsing with the Lynx or Elinks text mode browsers I find myself spending all of my time reading rather than being sucked in by various multimedia.
