Magpie Readers

Here is a line I like from a somewhat banal column by Ben McIntyre:
The internet has evolved a new species of magpie reader, gathering bright little buttons of knowledge, before hopping on to the next shiny thing.

I like the magpie line. In the rest of the column McIntyre makes the point that too much time on the Internet has made people unable to... something. I don't remember. I wasn't paying attention.
