Is Google making us stupid
I was listening to the radio the other day and they were mentioning Zuckerberg as one of the greatest inventors of all time for coming up with Facebook. And I was just floored. Here is a guy that found a fantastic way to have people waste their free time, and he is being honored? It's like a guy being given a Nobel prize for inventing a more addictive cocaine formula...
So while the Chinese kids are being drilled in multivariate calculus, our best and brightest are playing farmville or sending virtual pina coladas to their friends, or tagging shit of Flickr or whatever... For the one guy who posts something creative on YouTube, there are ten thousand videos of cats.
An endless trip down the rabbit hole of following one link after the other... Wow, what a senseless waste of human life.
