Google Effect: Changes to our Brains

The access to data anytime, anywhere, through search engines like Google, is taking an effect on human memory. (…) It isn’t clear what the effects of being so wired will have on people over time, but the use of search engines is causing our brains to reorganize where it goes for information, adapting to new computing technologies rather than relying solely on rote memory.
