"New forms of media have always caused moral panics"

Sugestão de leitura: o texto “Mind Over Mass Media“, de Steven Pinker, publicado no New York Times. O primeiro parágrafo dá a idéia:

“New forms of media have always caused moral panics: the printing press, newspapers, paperbacks and television were all once denounced as threats to their consumers’ brainpower and moral fiber. So too with electronic technologies. PowerPoint, we’re told, is reducing discourse to bullet points. Search engines lower our intelligence, encouraging us to skim on the surface of knowledge rather than dive to its depths. Twitter is shrinking our attention spans. But such panics often fail basic reality checks (…)”.

Para ilustrar, “Ave Maria”, trabalho de Maurizio Cattelan.
