Technologies such as Twitter, e-mail and PowerPoint are far from making us stupid — they are keeping us smart.
Carlos Mouta Raposo's insight:

Steven Arthur Pinker ( psicólogo, linguísta canadiano da Universidade de Harvard e escritor de livros de divulgação científica) neste artigo sustenta que teorias de pânico moral, em resultado do aparecimento de novas formas de "media" ( que Carr sustenta no "The Shallows"),  caem pela base quando sujeitas a verificações em situação real.

Carr has stronger arguments, and I think he needs to set this one aside. For the most vital part of the "genetic heritage" he cites is the very adaptability or plasticity he likes to emphasize.
Carlos Mouta Raposo's insight:

David Dobbs, autor do “ Kindle Single bestseller My Mother's Lover,” divide-se entre os argumentos de Nicholas Carr em “The Shallows “  e os de Steven Pinker. Acrescentando que as distrações de que Carr fala, na internet, são uma versão mais sofisticada das que tínhamos com as páginas de desporto nos jornais.
