After the stimulation of James Boyle's talk last night I went home hoping for a bit of r&r.... but instead became riveted to Radio 4's Analysis
(podcast available at since it's not on "listen again" - you can read the transcript but not copy it... what was James Boyle talking about??)

with contributions from Prof David Nicholas (UCL), Prof Tara Brabazon (Uni of Brighton), Stephen Fry and a bunch of school kids amongst others.

''A growing number of scientists are concerned that we are creating a digital generation, growing up online but unable to think, concentrate and learn in the way that their forebears did.

Kenan Malik examines the latest research to ask whether they are right to worry - or whether we should we asking wider questions about how we all use new technology.''
