Is Google making us stupid?
Start Date: 10/22/2012Start Time: 4:00 PM
End Date: 10/22/2012End Time: 5:00 PM
Event Description
Nicholas Carr, a Boulder-based author of the Pulitzer Prize-nominated bestseller, “The Shallows: What the Internet is Doing to Our Brains,” and the Atlantic Magazine piece, “Is Google Making Us Stupid,” will examine how digital media influence the ways people think, read and interact. 
Referencing media theorist Marshall McLuhan, Carr points out, “media are not just passive channels of information. They supply the stuff of thought, but they also shape the process of thought.” If the Web is shaping thought processes, what are people gaining? What are they losing? As people and society become increasingly dependent on the Web, how are they changing? Carr will discuss these issues.
