9/12 Carr & Shirky Discussion Questions

| No Comments

In Nicholas Carr's article "Is Google Making Us Stupid?" he states that the Internet is changing the way we read. He believes that the Internet is using methods such as "skimming" while reading through a scholarly journal article, or an e-book. On the other hand, Clay Shirky's article "Why Abundance is Good." states that the abundance of information given to us by the Internet is a good and resourceful thing. Based upon both of these articles, and being a current college student, do you think the Internet has changed the way you read and process information whether it is a scholarly journal article on a specific topic or an entire e-book for your class? Are you consciously aware of which way you retain information best? If so, do you believe you retain certain information better electronically or through print media?
