Excellent article. Having not grown up with technology, I couldn’t fully picture what scientists were warning us about - the rewiring of our brains. What it looked and felt like. This author really allowed a visceral feel into his addiction.

Thank God for specialists like Catherine Price who can help those who seek to unplug from the virtual and experience the Natural.

Bill, this if for you. I think this guy sums up our addiction really well. He's the Marie Kondo for the brain.
I need to get in touch with Kevin Roose. I'm sure he'll get a kick out of Readup.
