Yeah, what he says . . .

Interesting essay by Clay Shirky in the Wall Street Journal this weekend–“Does the Internet Make You Smarter?

And it turns out there’s a book due out next week: Cognitive Surplus: Creativity and Generosity in a Connected Age.   Sounds like yet another book that may end up on my iPad to-be-read virtual shelves.
