What a great book promotion!

Ever wonder how much the Internet has affected how we think? Fuhgeddaboutit! Our brains are done for!

This video is a clever promo for “The Shallows, what the Internet is doing to our brains.” by Nicholas Carr. What he’s saying really isn’t really new. But his approach makes learning about our intellectual demise fun.

Brilliant futurist Howard Rheingold, (“Net Smart”) who predicted everything about the Internet back in 1964, and who teaches Infotention and wrote many books about it – has covered this territory thoroughly and brilliantly.

But he never made a video like this one. What is the internet doing to our brains? Hint, nothing good.
