I think I've lost it.
I would argue that the internet is now the ultimate tool for learning. The theory that the internet is "dumbing us down" is pure hokum. Much in the same way that books have beneficial and pointless reading material, so too does the internet. One can either pick up a physics book or 50 shades of grey. One can go to Icanhazcheezburger or they can take online classes. I think tools are what you make of them. So I think that the internet being the ultime communication asset, it is our responsibility to make the most of it.
