On Becoming Stupid

Another article, this one from the Times Online, on how the digital age is making us stupid by ruining our ability to concentrate. In addition to referencing the "Is Google Making Us Stupid?" essay, it discusses a new book on the topic, Distracted: The Erosion of Attention and the Coming Dark Age, by Maggie Jackson and Bill McKibben. A lot of what he says in the article makes sense to me, as unnerving as that is.
