This article was also posted on the New York Times website. This brief excerpt allows some food for thought:

Young people “aren’t as troubled as some of us older folks are by reading that doesn’t go in a line,” said Rand J. Spiro, a professor of educational psychology at Michigan State University who is studying reading practices on the Internet. “That’s a good thing because the world doesn’t go in a line, and the world isn’t organized into separate compartments or chapters.”

The New York Times is going to continue this series of articles about how technology is changing our reading and writing culture as Americans. It’s worth a look.
