“The internet may not be making me and you stupid but it sure looks like its making a whole bunch of other people stupid” Meaning we have easy access to every crazy idea people put forward today at our fingertips.
“And not just any network Knowledge is taking on the shape of the internet”
This contradicts the first quote because there is vast amount of knowledge on the internet even if some people opinions sound crazy. It is up to us how serious we take every idea
The author uses the term filtering as in we have a over load in information that can overwhelm us
But today filters have been turned inside out and instead of reducing information and hiding it increases information.
