Lee_Ch7_Vesna_I

I totally agree with Vesna's idea which is the physical and Net Spaces are interdependent.

We've seen articles about Net technology is influencing our phyical and it's even changed the way and time we using our body parts. As occasion data serching through the internet, human brains are losing their memorizing fuction slowly but surely by degrees.

The technology which provides fast and anytime accessability to information on this planet, has certainly changed us to get information by typing and clicking for serching instead of trying to memorize it.

Did this start happening as soon as we switched from an oral culture? Didn't it get worse when Gutenberg invented the printing press?

My question is: Is it important to remember specifics or is it more important to remember and be able to apply the overarching theory and know how to find the specifics?

I think this will probably hurt us in the long run - eventually all of the information we need will be in digital form.

I mean, right now I can't even remember my girlfriend's phone number without looking at my phone.
