New York Times best-selling author Nicholas Carr explores the development of the internet and the role it has played in shaping how we think, work, and live. Carr’s work often explores the impact of technologies, including smartphones, computers, and tablets, on our cognitive abilities and the potential troubles that arise from the expanded use of the internet. He was a Pulitzer Prize finalist in the category of nonfiction for his recent book, The Shallows: What the Internet is Doing to Our Brains. Carr’s 2008 book, The Big Switch: Rewiring the World, From Edison to Google, explores the cultural significance and the potential economic consequences of expanding use of internet-based cloud computing.

“We have never been so intimately involved with a media technology as we are with the smartphone. We consult it every few minutes throughout the day and check it one last time before going to bed. What is this technological dependency doing to our minds?”

Nicholas Carr
