Should we sacrifice our brains to the Internet?

Should we sacrifice our brains to the Internet? | Digital Culture |

One of the greatest effects of the Internet is its ability to capture our attention only to scatter it, ultimately producing a generation whose brains are being better hardwired to scan, skim and multitask, causing a weakening in our ability to read and think deeply in a concentrated manner.

This is a terrific summary of the infographic. My feeling is that transparency is not a black and white definition of - disclosing everything or disclosing nothing. There's lots of shades of gray. I like the definition of transparency from "Public Parts" that Jeff Jarvis published last year - it also includes engaging with people around what you disclose. I think there is a place for being anonymous - especially when the information you disclose might put you in physical danger. Have written a lot about transparency - about the practice in my first book and in my second book how to measure it
