“Take the new Google Glass announcement that came out today. In the (admittedly awesome) demo video, the wearer is able to record and capture events as they happen from his or her point of view. Data is superimposed over the user’s viewpoint, which is supposed to enhance the experience. Maps appear before our eyes to tell us exactly where we’re going. We don’t have to remember anything – we just tell the glasses to look up the answer on the Internet.
And it’s making us dumber.”
