My first post for H+ Magazine. Hope you enjoy!


steve:

I haven't finished the article yet, but this left me musing:

    Brain extenders technically already exist. Google is a brain extender. Wikipedia is a brain extender. Your smart phone is a brain extender. You have access to world knowledge nearly everywhere for free.

Technically it's not free - you pay for access to those things, perhaps not directly to each service, but you pay for access to the internet. Higher education costs money.

so what can be said for the future of intelligence and how much of a factor does monetary wealth play into it?
