Carr states throughout the article that it is about peoples choices. If we value introspection as a road to insigh and believe that experiences with issues contribute to good judgment on those issues we are exercising our better judgment.

Carr states throughout the article that it is about peoples choices. If we value introspection as a road to insigh and believe that experiences with issues contribute to good judgment on those issues we are exercising our better judgment. According to Postmans third idea, embedded in every technology there is a powerful idea. In my experience I believe there is this powerful idea that technology is now a very important part of our culture. You have to be able to know the basics of technology inorder to work, get from location to the next, drive a car and possibly enjoy your leisure time. Carr made it very evident that google enhances these activities /lifestyle.

After reading Jana Anderson's, "Does Google Make Us Stupid?," and conducting scholarly research, I discovered that online web browsing may be a distraction to some individuals. According to Nicholas Carr, he claimed that internet browsing impared his ability to concentrate. He also claimed that printed pages of readings are how we acquire knowledge from the authors words. It is valuable, he states. We acclaim such knowledge in small, quiet open spaces. Without these quiet spaces we will "scarifice something important not only inourselves but in our culture." In relation to Neil Postmans first idea, that all technological change is a trade-off, we give up ourquiet spaces, and paper back books for quick, easy, short snippets of information via online web browsing. This works as an advantage that to many people, outweigh the disadvantage

Postmans 1st Idea

Postman's second idea is that the advantages and disadvantages of new technologies are never evenly distributed among the population.

Postman's second idea is that the advantages and disadvantages of new technologies are never evenly distributed among the population. I have learned throughout my research that google allows us to be more creative in approaching problems and more integrative in our thinking. In today's society that is essential. We face issues on a daily basis, having google as a tool to help face these issues is very helpful. Although we may become bad at doing somethings such as requiring rote memory of information but with that capacity freed, we are more capable of information that is now available to us through google. In relations to Postman's second idea, we as a society have the ability to take advantage of the technological advances society has to offer.
