What The Internet Is Doing To Our Brains[VIDEO]


I found this video in a post on ReadWrite, after I clicked a link  Jesse tweeted to a post about developers porting web apps to mobile and another post about Google throwing sand in Apple’s face.

This animated video examines the way our brain works with respect to finding, collecting and memorising information in respect to the internet. The researcher says the Internet distracts us most of the time and doesn’t give us the space to learn slowly and think deeply.

You’re encouraged to go offline for a while and do some slow thinking, or write down things on paper instead of typing them on your phone.

I promise I didn’t switch tabs while I was drafting this post. >_>
