The collective brain

A fascinating TED talk on how we as humans have and continue to progress at amazing rates. The nodes of our collective brain are becoming more and more efficient. Another valid point raised is that no one, and that is no one, knows how to build a computer mouse from scratch. There will come a time when there are not enough people left who know or remember how to write books or program computers. This time is coming in the IT world. Some systems just cannot be updated because no one remembers how to read or write the specific programming...

I felt 90% myself again, with one glaring difference. My emotion that used to drive my creativity was flattened. This “flatness” has shown me how much I had been using this emotion to think creatively and solve problems. I WAS a creative thinker, NOW I am an analytical thinker.

That’s right directly plugging your brain into the cloud to access all the power and information available currently through a search engine, thusly creating a hybrid brain.. If I were a marketing type I would be taking that on board and thinking of how people have said SEO is dead and now thinking of how we are going to get directly into peoples brains through their own thoughts.
