"If little else, the brain is an educational toy." Tom Robbins

I listen to a lot of podcasts everyday to try to stay on top of info. However I do not look forward to all of them but I do enjoy On the Media’s podcast. It airs on NPR stations and this week they had a segment about a subject that some students have been asking about. The topic is what is going to happen with people raised on the net. In the library this is a regular conversation. Are people reading less or are they just reading standard media less? Are our brains being rewired by the internet? Is the net making us dumb?
Below are a few interviews discussing the subject of the Net Effect. You can also head over to their site to hear and see all of their stuff.
