Is the internet making us dumber?

Nope. While it might have dumb down the English language due to people not having enough time to fully type out words (Well I guess that's text but it's still very common to see people shorten words on the internet), it's also enabled us to learn about things we probably would not have known about from anywhere else. Take Wikipedia - yes I know people can edit the info there and it's not 100% fact, but they do a good job making sure it's as accurate as possible and you can learn a lot about our history from using it, as well as from several other sites dedicated to different subjects (History of Roman Empire, the Solar System, geography of the Earth, ect.).
Ultimately I think it's all dependent on how you use it.
Don't really come here anymore. You can now find me here at IGN
