You love the Internet. You're not alone, obviously. That guy in the cubicle next to you is on the Internet too. That girl checking her email while walking down the street loves the Internet too. Your mom who messages you on Facebook, yeah, she's on it too. Everybody uses the Internet. But what is the Internet, a drug that everyone takes, doing to our brains?

Epipheo created this lovely little animation describing the thoughts of Nicholas Carr, author of 'The Shallows: What the Internet Is Doing to Our Brains'. Basically, it's everything you already know about the Internet. It's killing your attention span, it's making you lazy and it's making us use less of our brains. There's so much information and yet we retain so little of it. Ah, the Internet. I can't quit you. [Epipheo]
