We are losing our 'listening'

I was just speaking with a friend a few days ago that I felt that people were more interested in a 'sound-bite' that somehow effectively sums up an entire issues or topic or field of study.  My opinion (and probably the fact of the matter) is that the sound-byte can almost never take the place of a good, and usually long, explanation.

This TED Talk is about listening, and how we are losing our listening skills and with them our patience.
