Here is an interesting article by Andrew Sullivan about how Google might be making the world dumber rather than smarter!

Here are a couple of interesting snippets...
"Shallowness does not necessarily preclude depth. We just have to find a new equilibrium between the two. We need to be both pond-skaters and scuba divers. We need to master the ability to access facts while reserving time and space to do something meaningful with them."
"Some have suggested a web sabbath, a day or two in the week when we force ourselves not to read emails or post blogs or text messages; a break in order to think in the old way again. To look at human faces in the flesh rather than on a Facebook profile, to read a book rather than a blog, to pray rather than browse."
Sometimes I think I should run away from my computer for a day or two to restore my sanity!
