Two Quotes of the Day: Adam Gopnik on the Internet & Consciousness

Our trouble is not the over-all absence of smartness but the intractable power of pure stupidity, and no machine, or mind, seems extended enough to cure that.

Some machine is always showing us Mind; some entertainment derived from the machine is always showing us Non-Mind.

From “A Critic At Large: The Information; How The Internet Gets Inside Us”; The New Yorker; Feb 14 & 21, 2011
