Does the Immediacy of the Internet Make us Impatient? (@Byers_Andy)

Someone sent me the graphic below.  I know the stats are for the USA, but they reflect sentiments and practices that we experience here in the UK as well.  Thought it might be worth posting.

What do you think?  Are we more impatient because of the Internet?  Or have we ALWAYS been impatient and a slow-loading webpage just highlights or reveals it?

About AndyByers

I serve as the Chaplain for St Mary's College at Durham University while working on a PhD in the Department of Theology. CODEC has also taken me on to work as a theological consultant of sorts for the BigBible blog. My first book is about cynicism toward the church and disillusionment with God—'Faith Without Illusions: Following Jesus as a Cynic-Saint' (IVP Likewise, 2011). My latest is ‘TheoMedia: The Media of God in the Digital Age’ (Cascade Books, 2013).
