Linton Weeks explores our media consumption:

We just don't do whole things anymore. We don't read complete books just excerpts. We don't listen to whole CDs just samplings. We don't sit through whole baseball games just a few innings. Don't even write whole sentences. Or read whole stories like this one. We care more about the parts and less about the entire. We are into snippets and smidgens and clips and tweets. We are not only a fragmented society, but a fragment society.
