Tweets from Josh Hanagarne’s Keynote

Twitter was (a little ironically) very active this morning during  Josh Hanagarne’s keynote: “Is Technology Changing Our Brains?”

“For nearly 20 years I had read between 200 and 300 pages a day. There was nothing I’d choose over reading. Nothing. In 2008 I enrolled in a distance program to earn my MLS degree. I spent more time online that year than probably in all my other years combined. When I finished my degree, I found that my reading—pleasure reading—felt more difficult. I couldn’t focus. It felt like more work. As I began to read books like Nicholas Carr’s The Shallows: What the Internet Is Doing to Our Brains—I realized that it WAS more work than it used to be.” – -Josh Hanagarne, discussing how our brains have changed with the Internet
