"Through what we do and how we do it-- moment by moment, day by day, consciously or unconsciously-- we alter the chemical flows in our synapses and change our brains. And when we hand down our habits of thought to our children, through the examples we set, the schooling we provide, and the media we use, we hand down as well the modifications in the structure of our brains."

--The Shallows: What the Internet is Doing to Our Brains by Nicholas Carr (page 49)

How far do we embrace the new technologies? Where should the lines be drawn?
