Is the internet making us stupid?

I watched this fascinating interview with Nicholas Carr. It has something to say about our growing inability to engage in deep thinking (contemplation, meditation, focussed thinking, reading books, concentration). People often tell me that they can’t concentrate when praying or reading the bible. I wonder if this has anything to do with it… rhetorical question! The internet is not bad, but out of balance it skews our ability to think in other ways. Watch it and let me know what you think… or if you can relate. If you want to go deeper, this two part interview goes further into it.
