The Internet Is Making You Smarter, Really In his new book, “Smarter Than You Think,” journalist Clive Thompson argues that the digital revolution – from search engine sophistication to status update proliferation – is actually dovetailing with how the human brain naturally works to make us better thinkers.

Thompson recently spoke with Digiday about how new technology is changing the way we think, learn and remember – and why that’s a good thing for brands and people alike. Excerpts: Why is it that there have been more books that rail against the deleterious effects of digital technology than there are those like this, that celebrate it?

What they found there has kept them silent for 41 years. “We opened the gate, which was barbed wire with no lock, and entered,” Karl said. “We went on the property, which was covered with grass up to and over the hood of the truck.” They drove through the tall grass to the tank that sat close to a red barn and got out of the truck.

If You Think We Are Alone In The Universe – You Might Want To See This One of the most popular questions today is “are we alone in the universe?” Believe it or not, you’re in the minority if you believe that absolutely no intelligent life exists in the universe.
