The Internet is "making" us dumb?

"Some critics think the Internet is making us dumb. The Internet fundamentally changes the opportunity set. All the world’s knowledge and all the world’s garbage are both just one search away. The Internet appears to exacerbate innate tendencies — the smart get smarter while others will simply find new ways to waste time or inflict harm." --Tom Vander Ark
