The Web Will Change How Your Brain Works


Scary article from Nicholas Carr ‘Is Google Making Us Stupid?’. It’s also a great, thought provoking article. It even starts with a quote from 2001, which can’t be bad…

The gist of the article is that:

– By using the web, we condition and change the way our brain functions

– Because of this, we have lost the ability to absorb long text or print

– Similar changes have occurred in the past, for example with the advent of the clock or the printing press
