Digital Dementia Growing in Korea

Via Korea beat me to it. The Joongang Daily ran a similar article yesterday and I was planning on posting about it.

As a 2 year veteran, I can attest to it. My kids spend every waking moment on staring at their little plastic screens. Their addictions to text messages and games have made the already slow Korean way of walking even slower. Now they putz about with a phone in front of them because they can’t bear to miss their dramas, baseball games, or side scrollers.
