Internet Culture

Tyler Cowen has an intriguing article about the cultural change being caused by the Internet. The key change he notes is how we’re adapting and capitalizing on the brevity of so much that is written (or otherwise recorded) on the net. Is he right that this is “a change that is filling our daily lives with beauty, suspense, and learning” or is this just part of a great dumbing down? I suspect both are simultaneously true.
