asking big questions

I was listening to a podcast recently and the topic of the internet and the accessibility of information was posed, along with a question…

 

Does the vast availability of simple answers (on the internet) condition us to be unable to ask bigger questions?

Are we losing the ability to concentrate on a topic or even read a whole book on a subject without needing all of our questions answered immediately. Are mobile devices an enabler for our shortened attention spans?

 

Data without structure is useless, it needs to be organizzed to become information.

podcast in question.. approx 12 minutes in
