SRR: Is Google Making Us Stupid?

Summary: In the article, “Is Google Making Us Stupid”, the main point the author, Nicholas Carr is trying to make is that as the internet becomes our primary source of information, it begins to affect our ability to read books and other long pieces. Even though this process may offer knowledge efficiency, it flattens our brain’s learning experience in the process. The first thing Carr does is share a problem with the audience about how he can’t focus on reading.  Carr goes on to give a very well researched account of how a text on the internet is supposed to make the browsing experience fast and profitable. He describes how the internet is set up to make other people money and how our critical thinking skills and attention spans are degrading in the process. He wraps up his argument by describing what we are losing in the shift toward using the internet as our main information source.  He talks about the new idea of considering the mind as a computer feels bad for the loss of deep reading and the intellectual stimulation it provides for our brains. He wraps up his argument by describing what we are losing in the shift toward using the internet as our main information source.

Response: The title of the article, “Is Google Making Us Stupid?”, basically, tells us that the author is going to talk about the internet and how it is going to control us. Carr’s example about using technology are facts from real people. For example, he used a bit of history to back his argument how technology is controlling us, he quoted, “The company has declared that its mission is “to organize the world’s information and make it universally accessible and useful.” It seeks to develop “the perfect search engine,” which it defines as something that “understands exactly what you mean and gives you back exactly what you want.” (Carr). This quote helps Carr argue that Google’s goals is to “make it universally accessible and useful”. Carr believes that the information that Google provides are like some sort of substitute for writing instead knowledge inside the head. Technology changes the way people get information. Like there are some pro and con argument that Carr argued.

Reflection:  The article impacts me as a writer by getting a source from Google with care. Like as a writer, the information that we get from should help us to improve our ideas instead of substituting writing. This article clarifies that we shouldn’t take technology for granted.  I think that people adapted to the strengths of the internet and revealed the flaws at the same time. Some can argue that the fact that advertisements flood the screen and we are still able to continue to read is a form of increased focus. The internet was developed to provide us with the best method that works for everyone, regardless of the level of intelligence and comprehensive ability.
