Observations - Dumbed Down

Is technology making people dumber? In some respects, yes. More and more people who use technology regularly are not remembering things as well and their attention spans are getting shorter. But, I think that technology is the greatest tools mankind has ever invented. Can you imagine what Picasso, Beethoven, or Shakespeare could have done with a laptop (or even a smartphone)? We have tools at our disposal today that people could not have even imaged 100 years ago. I think in the digital age the whole definition of what being smart means will change.

What do you think?
