Transcript

Tonight, I'm very excited to welcome Nicholas Carr to Harvard Bookstore to discuss his new book, the Shallows, what the Internet Is Doing to Our Brains. Uh, Mr. Carr is the author of The Big Switch and Doesn't Matter, and his writing has appeared in the Atlantic Wired, the Financial Times, and The New York Times Magazine, among other publications.


Uh, he's the former executive editor of the Harvard Business Review, and he's on the steering board of the World Economic Forums Cloud Computing Project. In the shallows, Mr. Carr considers how the internet and modern media are restructuring our brains. Uh, Mr. Carr examines the evolution of information technology from the development of written language through the invention of the printing press, radio, television, and up to email, Google, Facebook, and other hallmarks of our new wired and wireless lifestyle.
