The Shallows: How the Internet is changing the way we think, read and remember

Date: Wednesday 2 March 2011 Time: 8pm

Location: Aula, Universiteit van Amsterdam, Singel 411 Amsterdam

Nicholas Carr’s 2008 essay “Is Google Making Us Stupid?” opened a new chapter in our relationship to digital technology. In his new book, Carr--who was previously editor of the Harvard Business Review--explores how the internet is changing our very brains: how we think, read and remember. As The Wall Street Journal put it, “We all joke about how the Internet is turning us, and especially our kids, into fast-twitch airheads incapable of profound cogitation. It's no joke, Mr. Carr insists, and he has me persuaded.” Join us for an evening with one of the world’s leading writers on the implications of technology.

Moderator: Joris Luyendijk.

Panelists: Nancy McKinstry, CEO of Wolters Kluwer and Marleen Stikker, director of Waag Society.
