Here's an interesting article with some jewels of wisdom, too long to read
perhaps.  The previous clause proves the point of the article itself:




Comment from the article:  An even bigger problem is the way that technology
damages critical-thinking skills. Because knowledge is so ubiquitous, we
don't have to hone it as sharply and we don't have to commit much to memory
- we can just Google everything. Researchers from University College London
<http://late-dpedago.urv.cat/site_media/papers/425.pdf> report that readers
skim information, rarely reread, and engage in something called 'power
browsing' rather than actual reading.


I would like to hear BillW's take on it.
