From: Facing down a Wiki World by William Christian April 6, 2009
I once sat towards the back of a large class during a guest lecture and I estimate that one-third of the class had Facebook on their screen. Others were accessing their Gmail accounts. A couple were playing solitaire.
In olden days I would have been forced to pay attention, faute de mieux, or perhaps clandestinely read a newspaper, but now I play Scrabble or do little quizzes to see which car I’m most like.
