Has the Internet become our virtual memory?
With access to the Internet ready at our fingertips, searching for knowledge is done this way instinctively.
However I believe the mass of information on the web isn’t making us lazy or replacing our memory, but predominantly allowing us to extend our knowledge further. Referring back to a bookmarked webpage is no different than marking a page in a book or taking notes. People are more likely to know more now than they ever have.
