A Cautionary Note - NYT on too much internet stimulation

As the primary blogger for the FSP blog, I'm slightly taken aback by this NYT article (Hooked on Gadgets...) .  It really just affirms what has already been suggested by last year's "Is Google Making You Stupid" essay in the Atlantic, but the bits that resonated gave me pause... e-mail as catnip and all that. . .  I will be off-line for at least 2 weeks in June and wonder if my brain will snap back into shape a bit (silly-bandz style?) or if the change is a bit more permanent than that?

I'm curious if other adults see any of themselves in it and even more curious what you think it might mean for our kids?
