O Edge lançou a pergunta “How the Internet change the way you think?” e recebeu a mais foda e singela das respostas:

I don’t know how the Internet is changing the way I think because I don’t know how I think.

Confesso que achei a pergunta meio bobinha, mas o nível dos autores da resposta torna sua leitura mais que obrigatória. A resposta acima, do neurocientista Steve Quartz, não me deixa mentir. Segue mais um trechinho>

Finally, there is a troubling epistemological problem: to know whether the Internet is changing how I think my introspection into my own thinking would have to be reliable. Too many clever psychology and brain imaging experiments have made me suspicious of my own introspection. In place of the Cartesian notion that our mind is transparent to introspection, it is very likely that numerous biases undermine the possibility of self-knowledge, making our thinking as impermeable to ourselves as it is to others.

A resposta de June Cohen também é boa, pois insere a internet em um contexto mais amplo.
