Web Tip: Is the Net Changing the Way We Think?

12. Juni 2008 — Eric Böhnisch-Volkmann

In The Atlantic, Nicholas Carr writes about the inpact that media of any kind has on the way we think, from the invention of the printing press to the Internet. Being four (!) pages long, the article puts itself clearly into the opposite position to what it defines as how the Internet distributes information: ‘in a swiftly moving stream of particles’. Definitely worth reading.

PS: Even though I am reading all daily news via RSS, I have also subscribed to the paper edition of Die Zeit. As a weekly newspaper, Die Zeit publishes long, thoroughly researched articles and definitely no summaries of any kind. And this is exactly why I chose it.
