I can relate to Clive Thompsons Wired article „Your Outboard Brain Knows All”. I do not remember anybodies phone numbers any more, I was never good at memorizing birth dates (if they are not in Xing or my Notes Calendar, I don’t know them) and I am totaly lost in regards to meetings, if I do not have access to my Notes Calendar.
What about you? Do you also swap „unneeded” information to your gadgets and databases? Do you think this is a good idea or will our brains degenerate due to a lack of training?
