Missing Support

Pg 267 "The idea that our minds should operate as high-speed data processing machines.."
In this section he claims that our minds should be operating faster, like computers but continues to show support that has nothing to do with his claim. His support suggests that the mega companies such as Google want us to search the web faster and click on as many links as we can. He also implies that those companies would not encourage leisurely reading and concentrated thought. However, earlier in this excerpt he mentions that the internet is making our minds scattered and making it harder for us to concentrate over long periods of time in turn making the reading process slower, therefore contradicting his new claim.

Pg 266 "The Internet promises to have particularly far-reaching effects on cognition."
He is making this statement with the only support of that from Alan Turing from 1936 from almost 70 years ago. He continues to talk about what he thinks the computer is becoming. This outrageous claim is made with little support to follow and no actual verification that this is to be true.

Pg 266 "Never has a communications system played so many roles in our lives-or exerted such broad influence over our thoughts-as the internet does today."
This claim is followed by no support at all. He continues to say theres been little consideration of how its reprogramming us…so how can he make a claim stating that it is playing such a large part of our lives, or that it has such an "exerted influence over our thoughts".

-The article was originally published in The Atlantic, an online magazine
-The Audience could be anyone who uses the internet, and has a background knowledge base in how the internet works.
-When writing we decide when claims, evidence and linkages need support when they are debatable. If someone can question what you are putting into your writing that means you need to back it up with information so that it cannot be questioned.
