I'm listening to the mp3 of On Intelligence (which i higly recommend), so I got interested in a fun but disjointed and academic discussion over at Edge entitled THE PANCAKE PEOPLE, OR, "THE GODS ARE POUNDING MY HEAD" started by avant-guarde playwright/etc Richard Foreman:
"But today, I see within us all (myself included) the replacement of complex inner density with a new kind of self-evolving under the pressure of information overload and the technology of the "instantly available". A new self that needs to contain less and less of an inner repertory of dense cultural inheritance—as we all become "pancake people"—spread wide and thin as we connect with that vast network of information accessed by the mere touch of a button."
...lots of smart famous people respond.
