Just spent a good hour following links, listening to audio and watching videos from Nicholas Carr and I have to say, he’s nailing it! He was asked by ABC – ‘So, is there a solution?’ He replied,
“Each of us is responsible for the choices we make and how we use or don’t use our minds… each of us has to ask hard questions… is the balance of thinking conducive to getting the most creative… the most introspective thought we can… and I think we’re losing this right now.”
I also read that the book is not aimed at one particular generation, but more for everyone using the Internet. I guess my question has to be: How are we going to communicate this message to a younger audience? Will they listen or are they too engrossed in the medium to care?
