Internet vs. literacy

Naomi S. Baron has an interesting article on how our ever growing ability to search for specific bits of information out of literature is leading to a culture that does not value the works that information comes from. In other words, why read the book if a synopsis or a google search will do. My favorite line is that this generation is "aliterate -- they know how to read but choose not to."
