Does technology make us smart or dumb?
Not everyone agrees that lack of memory recall is a bad thing.
“We are lucky enough to have access to information that we do not have to memorize anymore,” says Emma Moore, founder of Fundamental, a web development, and design firm. “If you are a programmer, you only need a reference to the code manual, but problem-solving skills are paramount.
The amount of information we need to sift through makes creativity, adaptability, and problem solving along with emotional intelligence more important than memorizing information.”
