Ways Technology Makes You Stupid
You cant remember much
Technologys tendency to butt into whatever else youre doing makes it more difficult to form new memories. As Nicholas Carr explains in The Shallows, memory comes in two types: transient working memory and longterm memory, which is more permanent. Information needs to pass from working memory into longterm memory in order to be stored. Any break in the processes of working memory like, say, stopping to check your email or send a text message in the middle of reading an article can erase information from your mind before that transfer occurs.
Theres also a limit to how much information your working memory can take in at once. Taking in too much information which happens a lot online is like having water poured into a glass continuously all day long, so whatever was there at the top has to spill out as the new water comes down, productivity expert Tony Schwartz told The Huffington Post last year.
