Re: Information Overload - Augmenting memory

I think it's depressing how little regard people give to memory these days. Technology makes people fat and lazy, intellectually. (Perhaps physically too). One example I noted in the past few years, are all the kids with laptops/recorders in class. They start typing notes or recording the lecture, a...

I believe that censorship is something that should never come from an established government.

That said, people will sensor themselves and each other within communities. Kind of like invisible hand economics? If I were to try and draw a comparison to something.

execution, perhaps, is subject to creativity, but it is a discipline that can still be practiced.

what cannot, however, be practiced, is you coming up with the original tune in your head. that comes creatively from within--so like i said, practice execution.
