After reading Nicholas Carr's Article, It came to my understanding that the internet has made viewers less intelligent or keeps us distracted from other things more important. Like having to type up an essay or blog online for class. We tend to get distracted when it comes to doing things like this mainly because trying to focus on one thing on the internet could get boring, when there are other sites or ads that got our attention. The hardest thing about the internet is indeed not being able to focus or concentrate more than we usually would. There is a vast amount of information that we can find on the web and we tend to skim through it rather than reading a full article.
The distraction of the internet has lead us to be less comprehensive, based on another article "Does the internet make you dumber?" related to the article by Carr. This article showed that people who read links or e-books off the internet tend to learn less than people who read the actual text. I believe this is true because are way of thinking is "scattered and superficial" stated Carr.The web has cost us to be more lazy to read or write long articles. Maybe because we have more access a lot of things and technology is more accessible to us than it was how many years back. We find it much easier to use the web and search anything we need to find rather then going to the library to find it. I just find it hard to believe that maybe other generations to come will be dumber? Or more dependent on google or the internet like we are today but receiving false information in the process.
