Our Abilities, and the Future of Civilization

Stephen Downes, Half an Hour, Aug 22, 2008
Commentary by Stephen Downes

My response does not appear to have survived Larry Sanger's moderation process (which is why I put copies of my responses on my blog). But in essence, I am commenting on his suggestion that some of the points Nicholas Carr makes in his ridiculous "Is Google Making Us Stupid?" essay may actually be valid. They're not - the presumptions in carr's post - and Sanger's exegesis - are contrary to simple observation. Which makes their assertion all the more astonishing.
