Furthermore, in this study, no comparison to the use of the written word was studied. (Miall & Dobson, 2001). Another point that Mr. Carr makes is that having constant external notifications can seriously affect one’s concentration, and that these people are less creative and productive. “Only when we pay deep attention to a new piece of information are we able to associate it ‘meaningfully and systematically with knowledge already…
