Computer as an extension of the mind

If the computer is an extension of your mind, as it is, then it is an extension only of the left hemisphere.

Or is this true? It was in the early days, when computers were used by engineers to engineer things.

Then is a network of computers a society, a left-brain society?

And what about the great chatter that is facebook, youtube, etc?

On facebook, everyone is talking but few are listening. Conversations are one-way comments on feed items. The stream of conciousness of the human race.

Or at least the rich ones.
