A study shows how the Internet is bad for us Harvard psychologists are releasing a paper in Science Express that finds people are more likely to remember where they found info as opposed to what information they found. From Ars Technica: "The results from all four experiments suggest that people expect computerized information to be continuously available, and actually remember less when they know they'll have access to it later. We also seem to remember where we can find information instead of the information itself."

“I think the best compliment I can give is not to say how much your programs have taught me (a ton), but how much Marketplace has motivated me to go out and teach myself.” – Michael in Arlington, VA
