More on the Internet and Reading

Nicholas Carr's Atlantic story "Is Google Making Us Stupid?" (which I discussed at some length here) has prompted a really interesting forum at Brittanica Blog, featuring posts by Clay Shirky, Sven Birkets, Matthew Battles, Michael Gorman, Carr himself, and others.

A side-forum has sprung up at Edge, and that's also proving very much worth a read.
