Is the internet making us stupid?



The internet is making us shallow and causing us to loose focus. Carr states that it is "changing the way we think, read, and remember". It is diminishing our ability to elaborate on subjects.


How does he come to this point of view?

How can we avoid being shallow?

Does the internet help us at all or does it only tear us down?

How do we not get short attention spans?


It hinders our learning. We do most of our work online which Carr says is not helpful for us.
