Yeah, but it depends on how you define "information". If a generation of people has decided that they know where to go for "information" and expect it to be ready and waiting, they are susceptible to whatever they encounter and quickly absorb. It allows certain ideas and memes to run rampant whether they are valid and have a rational basis or not.

It's a very curious time for Humanity.

It's a scary time for humanity. Not having important information embedded in your memory means if you need it quick, or the internet is down, what do you have? In addition to memory, I keep hard copies and books. Another study done by UCLA on the impacts of the internet on the human brain also showed how our brains are being rewired by the internet.

Yes... I saw a show on PBS yesterday where the host went up against a teenager on trying to recognize certain changes on a screen. Everyone assumed the teenager would be better at it from all the digital 'multitasking' he had done. NOPE! The older guy completely smoked him- something about not being able to maintain a focus on one thing for any length of time was thought to be the problem for the young guy. Heh.
