Is the Internet Making Us Smarter?
The Internet is the greatest store of human knowledge that has ever existed. But it is also a shopping mall, a video arcade and a Pandora’s Box. Tom Standage, digital editor of The Economist, and Emily Bell, director of the Tow Centre for Digital Journalism at Columbia University, discuss the Internet’s effect on intellect with Tim de Lisle, editor of Intelligent Life and Dr Aric Sigman, Health Education lecturer.
