And now for something pretty cool.

Y'know how every so often you get the grumpy old curmudgeons complaining that the internet is making us dumber? P'shaw, p'shaw! I say. A new study in Science. It appears that while our ability to remember  the content is diminished in the age of Google, we're a lot better at remembering where the information is. And when we know it's not somewhere accessible, memory of content improves. Ha. Memory is an adaptable beast. And how we're using it is changing. Not making us dumber. Pretty cool methinks.
