is the internet making us stupid? or just poor spellers? have you ever had a conversation with a friend or foe on IM only to toss out a tad of information. and wait for them to cross reference it in google prior to responding? while some of the aforementioned is not actually brought up in this bbc 4 radop podcast, it does seek to answer the question whether the young people have the capacity to actually read a book. even if it’s on the soon to be defunked kindle.
this week’s cover story on the weekly standard poses a similar question about facebook. which is definitely making people stupid.
