Do you think Internet has made you wise or stupid?

How has the Internet changed your thinking?

Let me guess:  The Internet stole your body, now a lifeless form hunched in front of a glowing screen. Your senses dulled as your greedy mind became one with the global brain we call the Internet.{:soso_e120:}

How has the internet changed the way you think?Comment here — write your own response.

Life is hard; it's harder if you're stupid.

It depends on the person per se. For me, the internet has made life a lot easier like doing research, and everything with the prefix 'e', etc. One needs to have self-discipline, use it wisely and take the necessary precautions. {:soso_e100:}

Internet is just a thing or a tool, whether its effect on our life positive or negative is due to the person who use it.
I think our whole society has become more effecient for that we can ger more information all around the world and contact with each other more conveniently.

Internet is ont supposed to be good or bad ,as the one above said ,it'd give us positive or negative effect due to the person who use it .but in fact ,I have to say that most of guys the young men as well as the kids are using it for playing cyber games ,and more and more lawbreakers are using it to commit a crime ,we cannot deny the convenience and advantage it brings to us ,but we must pay high attention to the disadvantage and problem it occurs .

The Internet has made our life more simple, let us have a dependence on the internet. On the one hand the no knowledge and things I would search the Internet, enrich our lives. On the other hand, the Internet makes me in a way to reduce the thought processes, stupid.

In my field (magic) internet has contributed to the creation of a generation of technically very good magicians but creatively very bad.

I appreciate that magic material is widely available, it helps to try our hands to a lot of different tricks. Problem is, before, people had to buy a book and go through it. There were a few images but they had to use their imagination a lot. Today they buy the DVD and do exactly what they've seen on the DVD, nothing more, nothing less. It is technically superb but they all do the same trick.

I recently was at a magic convention where I purchased a lovely trick. The seller gave me a demonstration and, in his demo, he was putting the deck of cards face down on the table. When I performed it I was putting the deck of cards face up as I thought the effect was stronger this way. One of the people looking at me, who saw the creator's demonstration and was then looking at mine), said "oh you did it wrong". The creator of the trick had to tell him there was no right or wrong in this case, I just did it differently and he even said he found my way was punchier than his way.

So I guess we can say Internet has created a generation of mindless zombies :)
Spreading magic around the world since 2007.
