I’m increasingly sympathetic to the Butlerian Jihad. While I don’t plan to abandon email any time soon, I’m worried by fellow humans’ reliance on technology. If a fact is unknown, people rush to Wikipedia or Google. Those I know over forty are noticeably better at mental math than those under forty. People don’t memorize, except through massive repetition; they worship St. Google.

Are we allowing ourselves to grow more stupid?
