“I make but a simple statement of fact when I say that for years I was like on bound hand and foot to a log racing madly on a torrent, saved miraculously time after time from dashing to death against the many boulders projecting out of the swirling water on every side by just a narrow margin and in the nick of time, turning and twisting this way and that, as if guided by a marvelously quick and dexterous hand infallibly correct in its movement … At times I felt Instinctively that a life and death struggle was going on inside me in which I, the owner of the body, was entirely powerless to take part, forced to lie quietly and watch as a spectator the weird drama unfolded in my own flesh.”

Making Impatience

n

From GigaOm via Raymond Pirouz:

“A new study reports that faster internet connections have made viewers more impatient, and that people begin abandoning videos if they don’t load within two seconds. Every second of additional delay results in approximately 6 percent more viewers jumping ship.”

I am assuming that this “information” is supposed to inform those who wish to publish videos online that they need to deliver their goods fast(er) because people are impatient. Faster connections will make users more impatient. More impatience will push providers to provide information faster … impatience will be addressed and rewarded. Is this not a vicious feedback cycle that breeds more impatience? Are short and nervous attention spans created by technology or by its creators?
