Magic of Information Age !!

I had thought that the magic of the information age was that it allowed us to know more, but lately I have realized the magic of the information age is that it allows us to know less.

It provides us with external cognitive servants — silicon memory systems, collaborative online filters, consumer preference algorithms and networked knowledge.

We can burden these digital and electronic servants and liberate ourselves from the 'human' tasks of rememebering and some day ... even thinking.
