This will continue to devolve into a thread similar to the Facebook threads with lots of belt-onion adjustments and the requisite "I'm above all this; it's so pedestrian" type comments.

This is shaping up to be one of the most enjoyable thread in some time.

2/3rds of the posters recognize themselves and are outraged at the notion that they really are the shallow, vacuous individuals that they secretly know they are, and the other 1/3 didn't even read the article (or past the first paragraph) but are not letting that stop them from having a fully formed opinion about it or it's source (hint: it wasn't NewsMax).

And they say irony is dead.

According to Carr's theory, the heavy use of texting and Twitter - both ultra-brief social media technologies - has made people's thought processes more superficial because it encourages rapid and relatively shallow thinking.

Yes, because shallow people have never existed before the rise of The Internet and Texting, and shallow people would never gravitate towards social media, twitter, and massive amounts of texting. Never.

It must be that The Internet and Texting are making people shallower. That's it.

It's my own fault. I clearly saw the newsmax tag, and I clicked anyway.

Reading that "article" made me 30% dumber, according to the University of Winnipeg.

Majick Thise: From the very first paragraph I can see a problem...

They need to define shallow and ethical. They use the words but let me insert my own idea of what those words mean. Makes the 'study' pretty much worthless
