“Is Google Making Us Stupid” Journal

In Nicholas Carr’s article what rhetorical mode is used between his brain and the movie “2001 Space Odyssey?” What other professionals does he include in his discussion to support his feelings about what the Internet is doing to his brain? Describe the examples of the changes in the brain historically. For example, what is “silicon memory” and why does Clive Thompson describe it as an “‘enormous boon to thinking?’” In paragraph four, explain the analogy that Carr uses when he says, “Once I was a scuba diver in the sea of words. Now I zip along the surface like a guy on a Jet Ski.” Is this a good or bad reaction to technology? Describe at least two of the historical technology references that Carr makes in this passage. Why are they significant and how do they compare to how the internet has changed us and our brains?
