How the Web Became Our ‘External Brain,’ and What It Means for Our Kids | Michael Harris Opinion | WIRED.com

How the Web Became Our ‘External Brain,’ and What It Means for Our Kids | Michael Harris Opinion | WIRED.com | Interesting Articles | Scoop.it

Recently, my two-year-old nephew Benjamin came across a copy of Vanity Fair abandoned on the floor. His eyes scanned the glossy cover, which shone less fiercely than the iPad he is used to but had a faint luster of its own. I watched his pudgy thumb and index finger pinch together and spread apart on Bradley Cooper’s smiling mug. At last, Benjamin looked over at me, flummoxed and frustrated, as though to say, “This thing’s broken.”

 

Search YouTube for “baby” and “iPad” and you’ll find clips featuring one-year-olds attempting to manipulate magazine pages and television screens as though they were touch-sensitive displays. These children are one step away from assuming that such technology is a natural, spontaneous part of the material world. They’ll grow up thinking about the internet with the same nonchalance that I hold toward my toaster and teakettle. I can resist all I like, but for Benjamin’s generation resistance is moot. The revolution is already complete.

Why We Don't Protect Our Passwords

Why We Don't Protect Our Passwords | Interesting Articles | Scoop.it

Last week, news broke that a Russian crime ring has stolen 1.2 billion user-name and password combinations, and more than 500 million email addresses—the latest in a long string of data breaches. The experts say the best way to protect your identity and online information is to change passwords regularly and use a different password for every site. Yet according to a survey conducted last spring by the Pew Research Center, only 39 percent of Internet users ever changed their passwords.

 

As someone who studies consumer choice behavior, I’m always intrigued by statistics like these. Obviously, there is a yawning chasm between what we should be doing and what we actually do. And I’m just as guilty. I have not changed my password despite a one-in-three chance that my computer will be hacked, my credit card abused, my identity stolen, and all the other stuff I do not want to think about. This raises two important questions: why don’t we act in our own best interests, and how can we get better at it?
