  7. 7. “There’s a set of rules that anything that was in the world when you were born is normal and natural. Anything invented bet ween when you were 15 and 35 is new and revolutionary and exciting, and you’ll probably get a career in it. Anything invented after you’re 35 is against the natural order of things.”
  8. 8. Usual suspects
  9. 9. “For the net we work on, the digital connections our government seeks to spread as a universal right, the keyboards in our homes, are blights as well as boons. We won’t automatically be ­better with no books to finger and caress. We aren’t better for grisly YouTube grimaces from Downing Street, or Obama t wittering away when he could be thinking. Before there were computer disks to steal from the fees office, there was ­privacy, secrecy and supposed decency undisturbed.”
  10. 10. “Of course, we do not know whether the current increase in autism is due more to increased awareness and diagnosis of autism, or whether it can - if there is a true increase - be in any way linked to an increased prevalence among people of spending time in screen relationships. Surely it is a point worth considering”
