Is google making us stupid?

I often wonder about this, what are the effects of copious internet reading? What the Internet is doing to our brains " are not just passive channels of information. They supply the stuff of thought, but they also shape the process of thought. And what the Net seems to be doing is chipping away my capacity for concentration and contemplation."

And another good article referencing changes on brain function with regard to internet usage. I know there is often the tendency to romanticise the past over the present but.. Is It Just Us, Or Are Kids Getting Really Stupid?
