When I ask why the poor have no food,
they call me a communist." ~~~~~ Dom Helder Camara

Piece of Mind: Is the Internet Replacing Our Ability to Remember?
Brain injuries, here. Struggled for decades with crates of books, notebooks and other media as an external memory, since I have trouble with my own. Internet changed all that: everything stored digitally, easy to retrieve. Frankly, internet helps memory A LOT! I've learned SO MUCH about literature, science, politics, art, animal husbandry, sustainable living and on and on. I NEVER would have learned all this with books and libraries. Give the trees a rest. If our minds are free from storing minutia, might they not create the paradigm shift that could save us and our planet from ourselves?
