- "I don't e-mail. And there's a reason. I don't want you reading my personal stuff," U.S. President George W. Bush, American Society of Newspaper Editors Conference, Washington, D.C., April 2005.
- The Web does not create a way of reading that imprints memories or enriches embodied understanding.... The evidence I offer is anecdotal, personal, scattered: the students I teach seem to remember very little from class to class, term to term, and many colleagues have corroborated this state of affairs from their own experience. Many students seem to read only for the moment, rather as if they were using an abacus, which leaves no record of the operations it makes; its calculations occupy only time present, never time past.
