I still like what Einstein is often credited with saying:

“Don’t fill up your brain with information you can easily look up.”

I wonder if services like Google and its intended and unintended effects on our memory might just help our society (even humanity) better synthesize the vast amounts of information out there, rather than just being able to memorize it.

Learning is about making connections, not just memorization.
