"Problem Is Computers Only Give You Answers"

The Best Seat (for Thinking). Period.

I think therefore I am. I Google therefore I correlate and will have more time to think about other more meaningful things.

Both leads to learning nirvana, right? Only that the casualty is the 'scientific method'. Is it time to do away with it? Doctors practice correlation all the time and indeed it makes for a quicker response. There was a general belief back then in college that if you can memorize, then you can be a doctor (Apparently, you also need a money-bearing tree).

Computers (having the best memories) know all the answers.

And questions? That's where humans come in.

Thanks to Kevin Kelly and Chris Anderson for making me think.
