Tyson's Spiritual Journey

Vince Thomas | Jul 13, 2010 Mike Tyson during his journey to Mecca
"my whole life has been a waste – I've been a failure."

    The Shallows: What the Internet Is Doing to Our Brains, Nicholas Carr (W. W. Norton & Company 2010; ISBN: 0393072223)

    "Google is neither God nor Satan, and if there are shadows in the Googleplex they're no more than the delusions of grandeur. What's disturbing about the company's founders is not their boyish desire to create an amazingly cool machine that will be able to out think its creators, but the pinched conception of the human mind that gives rise to such a desire." (in Chapter Eight: The Church of Google, p. 176)

    Review: The New York Times - Jonah Lehrer
    While Carr tries to ground his argument in the details of modern neuroscience, his most powerful points have nothing do with our plastic cortex. Instead, The Shallows is most successful when Carr sticks to cultural criticism, as he documents the losses that accompany the arrival of new technologies.
