“Is Google Making Us Stupid”, is an article written by Nicholas Carr. It presents the idea that technology, specifically the internet, is effecting the way people concentrate as a whole. The reader expressed that he has trouble reading any kind of long text. He says he can barely involve himself in any books anymore, even though he used to do all his research from paper. It was also said that if something is more than 3-4 paragraphs, it is hard to read and he has to just skim the information. His point was that technology is changing the way people think, for the worse.
I agree with what Nicholas Carr is saying. Even reading the article I stopped to look at my phone and computer even though it is only a couple pages long. I had trouble concentrating on the text. I read the first page fine, then started to doze off. I do think people spend too much time on their phone, myself included. It becomes part of a routine, I always have my phone on me and constantly look at it.
