Nicholas Carr's blockbuster essay on how the Internet is changing the way we think, now available in a Kindle edition. Originally published in The Atlantic magazine in 2008, "Is Google Making Us Stupid?" set off a worldwide debate about the cognitive and cultural consequences of our infatuation with computers and online media. The New York Times called it the article that "everyone is talking about." The essay served as the original inspiration for Carr's Pulitzer Prize-nominated book "The Shallows: What the Internet Is Doing to Our Brains." This edition of the essay includes an author's note on his sources. Approximately 5000 words in length. Cover hummingbird photo by Dan Pancamo ( used under Creative Commons license (
