Facts vs Knowledge–Nicholas Carr

Good post from Nicholas Carr on the increasingly common argument that instant access to facts (via iPhone, Android, Google or Wikipedia) means that people no longer need to learn things:

“Facts become most meaningful when, thanks to the miracle of memory, we weave them together in our minds into something much greater: personal knowledge and, if we’re lucky, wisdom.”
