Google Is Making Us Stupid
In this article "Is Google Making Us Stupid?" , what I got the most out of it is that Google is making us stupid and really impatient. As the author starts this article he talks about not having a very good attention span anymore. Every since he has started doing everything on the computer he has yearned for convince every since. He says that his attention span is no good anymore and that he can not write or read long stories anymore without getting distracted or getting bored and wanting to flip to something different. He says he wasn't the only one with this problem. Everyone who he has talked to seems to have to same problem because for one to entertained they only have to press a few buttons and then they would be satisfied and be completely thrown off from what they were doing. I thought it was very interesting how Socrates had everything memorized and figured out ways not to forget, and now in our age people will forget things very easily because you have everything in your hand or in your computer so there is no need to memorize it when its as easy as one two three to pull in up and have it right their infront of you. In my opinion that is the reason why people don't do as well on electronic things that they have to complete for a grade or for their job because they get distracted and bored and want to other things because you have the world at your fingers, so why not get distracted?
