- Lecture: "This is Your Brain On Tech" - Nicholas Carr, lecture given at the New York Academy of Sciences on 11/9/10.
Summary: The Internet is quickly becoming our primary living space, and multitasking is becoming the behavioral norm for our society. Research is starting to show how the Internet affects our memory, our ability to learn, and our lifelong intellectual development. In this lecture, Nicholas Carr, author of The Shallows: What the Internet is Doing to our Brains, considers both the pros and cons of heavy internet usage. He challenges us to evaluate our learning behaviors and their consequences, both for good and for ill. Are you willing to focus on building knowledge, instead of gathering information? Listen, and think it over!
