Douglas Coupland: The Internet and rewiring our brains

Douglas Coupland, Canadian novelist, artist and Financial times columnist, writes in his latest book, writes in has latest book 'Kitten Clone: Inside Alcatel-Lucent': "What’s really happening is that, after more than 10,000 hours of exposure to the internet and digital technologies such as my iPhone, my brain has been rewired – or, rather, it has rewired itself. Science has a name for this process: Hebb’s Law. When neurons fire together, they wire together. It’s no coincidence that the 10,000-hour rule has recently entered our culture’s popular imagination, explaining to us that after doing something for 10,000 hours, you become an expert at it, because that’s how much time your brain needs to fully rewire itself to adapt to a new medium."
