Default Re: Long form recommendations.

Neil Postman, Revisited: Are We Having Too Much Fun? - The Atlantic

This article is great, and it's not really all that long, but I also strongly recommend Amusing Ourselves to Death to anyone who hasn't read it. It's a little dated, but as the article says, its general arguments are even more applicable now than they were at the time. (That argument, and that book in particular, played a big part in why I didn't have a TV for a long time.)
