Article: Nicholas Carr’s dire warning: How technology is “making the world less interesting”

From the article: 

"The most insidious effect is that when you become dependent on the software, you can quickly conclude that, well, this wasn't a skill that was important to know anyway. In addition to losing the skill, you start to pretend to yourself that that skill didn't matter anyway – that the computer can do it for me.

I do think that's dangerous, to just assume a computer can do things. Or that we can give [skills] away without suffering ill effects or without lessening our involvement with important things, or lessening our sense of fulfillment from learning stuff and exercising our talents."
