The Case of the Missing Brains

September 26, 2010 at 10:09 AM 1 comment

Sometimes I have no choice but to agree that technology makes people dumber.

In addition to thinking that the easiest way to add phone numbers is by making a Facebook event, people now no longer know how to use the Internet for its greatest potential: knowledge.

I do not know if we skipped a generation or two, but does nobody know how to use a search engine anymore?

If a link on a teacher’s page is broken, people start freaking out. It’s like when a leaf falls into the path of an ant in Bug’s Life. “Around the leaf? I-I-I don’t think we can do that. Mr. Soil.” They automatically revert to social networks to try to find the answer, and while asking for help is perfectly acceptable, everyone ought to take the initiative to solve problems on their own first.

If we are going to let Google replace the brains most of us never had, we could at least use it from time to time.

    i cannot say if people are getting dumber, but there’s no question that people are getting lazier. We want people to do our work, and we do not want any costs inflicted on us. We outsource our jobs cause they are cheaper. We hire immigrant farmers because they do not need health benefits or high wages. We take advantage of nice people out there.

    They say that we live in a quick fix society,

    Ironically, doing stuff by yourself would be quicker.
