What the Internet is doing to our brains

Nicholas Carr, Norton, 2010 (own, used)

Snarky, glib summary: The Internet makes you stupid.

How we think depends on our thinking tools. Carr takes us through oratory (small vocabularies), to books (million word vocabularies), to newspapers, to broadcast media, to "the Internet".

Carr gets some of the details (that I know about or experienced) wrong. He gets some interesting things right.
