do story

"...with the internet boom of the 1990's there followed in 2003  the viral explosion of social media.  With it a new deceiving conceit arose: that anything worth knowing is available at our fingertips.  This immediacy has, curiously, made people less curious about discovering the world, at least in any depth...What this means is that today's children may know the facts but not the context in which they happen.  As they are no longer being shaped by a storytelling world, they seem to lack the will to dig deeper, preferring to surf in the immediate."  Bobette Buster, Do Story
