So I'm noticing a disturbing trend in online news stories from sources like Time and Fox. There will be an article on some kind of news, let's say Tiger Woods, and after EVERY PARAGRAPH there will be a hyperlink advertising some other article. In other words, there will be a paragraph that says, "Tiger Woods' wife Elie is moving to Sweden with the kids" and then a hyperlink that says "See Elie's bikini model photos." Then the next paragraph will go back to the main story, and is followed by another hyperlink "See the list of Tiger's mistresses!"

This is after EVERY PARAGRAPH! They think that we can't make it though a five second paragraph without needing to think about something else? Pretty soon the attention span in this society will be less than ten seconds.

Well, considering that Tiger couldn't keep his attention focused on less than a dozen women at a time, let alone just his wife, the "ADD" seems appropriate in his case.
