Today, the Internet grants us easy access to unprecedented amounts of information. But the Net, with its constant distractions and interruptions, is also turning people into scattered and superficial thinkers. Do you agree?

In my opinion, The internet makes dumb people dumber and smart people smarter.
It depends on how people are using it.

internet can let you see/hear what you cant see/hear in reality...

classic example:
all medias, poker face friends, propaganda, etc.
all true faces will come out in the internet...they cant hide...

I don't think the internet makes you any more or less intelligent than you are. What it can do however is change your knowledge for the better or worse and also in many cases only provides part of an answer to a much larger topic.
