Life On the Virtual Frontier ***(8/10)***
27 September 2011 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This episode examines how technology has impacted our daily lives and its effect on how we perceive it from real life. It starts in MIT to analyze how the brain handles multitasking, from which I formed the acronym MulITasking. From there, it jumps into psychology with interviews from the prestigious Professor Nass. I found their coverage of research that the brain has more activity during an internet search verses reading a book particularly unbiased, never opting for a bandwagon approach. We move to South Korea to learn more about the net cafés and online gaming and how these games have permeated to school and war training. References to past technological changes never become heavy handed as I'm sure we've all heard about the change from papyri to print many times.
