Lots of opportunities and worldwide information of each and every topic is within our reach with just a click and the comfort of our bed which was almost impossible to think back in the day, just take what i am writing for instance, i would have to be insane to think i could do this at a whim whenever i please and share it with a worldwide audience!

Despite the fact that research on the detrimental effects of the Internet is still young, there is no doubt that the Internet is changing the way one thinks, but it is not necessarily making one “dumber.” What it is doing, however, is bringing to light some bad habits that are affecting the way we process information.Everything else was either already there or unfortunately not.Once food was acquired, play or rest became de’ riguer.I get anxious after a few pages because I am trying to get to the main point and end up skimming the information.The problem is we are always searching for information.I can assure you that after twenty minutes I will have completely forgotten what I was originally looking up because of the dozens of tabs I will have open.Consequently, technology no longer makes it necessary to practice effective memorization skills.
