"The Internet is making us stupid!" —"No, smarter!"
There has been quite the back-and-forth in The New York Times between people like Nicholas Carr, who argues that the Internet is making us dumber; and Steven Pinker, who contends that it's making us smarter. The NYT has weighed in with its own editorial, arguing that the Internet is "a global library of fact and data . . . [that can] enrich our lives."
I agree with all of them.
