Discussion Question: Is Google Making Us Stupid?

| No Comments

By Ashley Stopperan

My question for this post revolves around this specific quote in the article:

"'As we are drained of our inner repertory of dense cultural inheritance,' Foreman concluded, 'we risk turning into pancake people--spread wide and thin as we connect with that vast network of information accessed by the mere touch of a button.'"

I am wondering if people believe that we can really have an impact on our futures of becoming "pancake people." Can we really avoid the speed and dominance of technology? If searching the web has become such an addiction and is proving to have negative affects on our brain developments, is there really any way that we can avoid it?
