Is Literacy Still Possible in Our Hypreconnected World?
Ida Jane Dacus Library
I know it’s a bit out of favor to criticize the Web and all its glory, but it really isn’t the world’s knowledge so much as it’s the world’s chatterbox. That’s at least two steps from knowledge and one from information. While it does make billions of dollars for various interested parties, it may not be helping us as much as we think. It may even be hurting us more than we know, and certainly more than we’re willing to admit.
