The Internet is eating your brain.
While perpetual connection to the global flow of information has undoubtedly brought great advances, it has also cost us the ability to focus and concentrate on a single subject for a prolonged period of time, author Nicholas Carr argues in his recent book “The Shallows: What the Internet Is Doing to Our Brains.”
Nicole Stockdale, assistant editorial page editor here at the DMN, interviewed Carr a few weeks ago, and his book will be the subject of the Dallas Morning News’ Points Summer Book Club, which kicks off with an online discussion (and no, the irony is not lost on me) this Sunday.
Then, on August 6, there will be a Q&A and book signing with Carr at the Dallas Arboretum.

Now, if you’ll excuse me, I see in my Twitter tab that I have 10 new tweets in my feed that need attention. But maybe I’ll check out Google+ first.
