The age of infinite browsing

The premise of this book sounds interesting: Dedicated – The Case for Commitment in an Age of Infinite Browsing.

Author Pete Davis believes that a defining characteristic of our generation is to keep our options open as we are stuck in ‘infinite browsing mode’. This culture of restlessness and indecision, he argues, is causing tension in the lives of young people today, wanting to keep options open and yet yearning for the purpose, community and depth that can only come from making deep commitments. 

I haven’t got hold of the book yet, but I’d be interested to read it. It seems we can see the effect in audience data already given tickets are being booked more and more last minute.
