deek writes: The internet may be reshaping how our minds work. Author Nicholas Carr talks about how the internet is influencing our thought processes and what the possible consequences of that are. "The ability to scan and browse is as important as the ability to read deeply and think attentively. What's disturbing is that skimming is becoming our dominant mode of thought.".

The lack of ability to concentrate on single tasks. The urge to browse information for no apparent reason. Are these the result of using the internet? Is this something we need to consciously work to avoid?
