What is the Internet doing to our brain? According to Nicholas Carr, the author of the controversial The Shallows: What The Internet Is Doing To Our Brains, today’s always-on web is a perpetually distractive medium that is undermining our ability to think deep thoughts, read deep books and engage in deep conversations. So is Carr correct, or is his nostalgia rooted in a romanticized vision of a world that never really existed?

To discuss what the Internet is doing to our brains, Andrew Keen is joined – in the first episode of his new TechCrunch TV show, ‘Keen On…’ by both Nicholas Carr and BT’s open-source evangelist Kevin Marks, for what we hope is a deep debate about The Shallows.
