What is the effect technology places on the human mind?
Nicholas Carr’s “Is Google Making Us Stupid?” highlights the effects of technology on the human mind. In this day and age, people have become extremely dependent on technology. It is easier to use Google, Bing, or any other search engine to answer a question rather than think for ourselves. Carr states that the internet is “becoming our map and clock, our printing press and our typewriter, our calculator and our telephone, and our radio and TV” (69). It provides an advanced, alternative way to the everyday tasks we encounter. Using the internet, it can provide directions to a location, correct writings or even play music on request. To go even further, phone calls can be made not only by voice but video as well, allowing connections both domestic and international. These improvements have benefited how things were handled years ago. Things can be done at rapid speed and with less effort. It is quite impressive how in a matter of years society has transformed into the digital age seen today. Technological advancement is still positive, however, the internet allows people to become lazy and rely on an artificial object rather than their brain to solve problems and answer questions. We have stopped using the natural intelligence we possess, but rather rely on a computer to think for us.
