Re: Rewired brains
Agreed that it will be interesting. Although, some of these larger strategic team games could turn the tables and give longer attention spans in front of the computer.

Rewired brains
Seems like a lot depends on the long-term effects of letting children grow up with tablets/smartphones seemingly surgically attached to their eyeballs for hours every day. Plenty of experts wonder if this exposure will make it more difficult to pay attention to "slower-paced information" for long periods -- the focus that's required to write kernels as opposed to building the next Angry Flappy Birds app.

It will be fascinating to watch as the long-term effects on attention spans unfold. (Full disclosure: I started writing this post then got distracted by IM and email. It's not just kids ...)
