I was going to post a link to Steven Johnson’s excellent NYT Magazine article called “Watching TV Makes You Smarter.” Now I’ll up the ante by also posting a link to a thought experiment on his blog where he asks what today’s video game detractors would have said if video games had come before books. Both well worth reading.
