So, I’ve been taking some computer science classes. My teacher is just great, and she is very funny. In class she’ll say things like “NEVER!!! Pass a class or struct by value! NEVER!” Also, she’ll talk about how her stuff on the bottom of her stairs compares to a sorting algorithm and stuff. Anyway, it is total nerd joke stuff, and I love it! hahaha. So one day I got the idea to make a drawing of her with something she says. Then I turned the drawing into some bookmarks and magnets. I did give some to her, and she laughed. LOL. Plus the TAs seem to like them too. This photo is of one of the magnets. ;)

Review: The Shallows-What the Internet Is Doing to Our Brains

“The Shallows: What the Internet is Doing to Our Brains” by Nicholas Carr is a terrific and fascinating book. I couldn’t put it down. It would be easy to dismiss Carr and say “oh yah, whatever, the internet is making us all dumb, riiiiiiight,” but his case is compelling and hard to dismiss. He isn’t even so much saying that technology is bad at all. His point seems to be that we should be more mindful of the impact that technology has on us. Only Carr talks about it with interesting and thought-provoking examples from ancient history to current psycho-biology! You’d do well to read this book in print and NOT on an ebook reader too!

This book is engaging, well written and thought-provoking. If you really believe you are getting so many things done by doing 100 things at once, you should pick up this book and think again. Well worth the thoughtful contemplation time. (  )
