This post on Shashdot is about an article that concludes that using e-mail, makes your IQ drop 10 points.
The Guardian is reporting that a recent study at King’s College indicates that the average IQ loss of email users was 10 points (or six points more than cannabis users). Details on The Register as well. The Register has a related story about how computers make kids dumb and an apparent "problem-solving deficit disorder" observed in children who use computers. I thought it was television that rotted your brain?"
Somebody posted a comment on the article.
"I bet you lose 20 points for IM"
Hmmm, maybe he’s right.
And what about reading MSN Spaces, RSS feeds or Blogs…. 🙂
