I think it is partially true; While the Internet doesn't make us necessarily dumber, it does make a significant part of it's users lazier. "Why bother learning something when I can just [insert favourite search engine here] it?" is an argument I've heard a few times. On the other hand, motivated people might learn quite a lot from websites like Wikipedia. I've found myself browsing Wikipedia quite often.
