Thanks to the Internet, I have the opportunity to be better informed about a wider range of subjects than has ever been possible hitherto. And so does everyone else, if they're prepared to take it. Is that a bad thing?

No, it's obviously not a bad thing, and I too am better informed about all sorts of subjects as a result of the internet.

But, I do believe that it discourages the individual retention of knowledge, because of its immediacy.
