“Is Google Making Us Stupid?” By Nicholas Carr made me feel scared for my future, if technology importance will increase. First of all, it made me realize how much of a distraction technology actually is. The internet has made it hard for me to stay focused when reading things you can’t learn about quickly. Due to the Internet, my expectation of receiving information is to have it quickly and with little or not effort. If technology influence also increases, the human brain will not be highly valued. “The human brain is just an outdated computer that needs a faster processor and a bigger hard drive.” This will start the thinking that if something isn’t fast enough, it can just be replaced with something faster and better. Technology will be considered the best and what was once valued in human beings will be frowned upon.
