The Missed Information Age

One of my favorite Albert Einstein quotes addresses the influences of experience, learning and information on knowledge:

Information is not knowledge. Learning is experience.  Everything else is just information.’

Today, it’s all about information:

The Information Age;

The Information Gap; and

The Information Generation!

Have the ‘hand-machine-walkers’ out there really increased their knowledge of themselves, the world, and life itself?

To quote an American college student who was recently asked, ‘

Who fought in the Civil War?

Her response, ‘Russia and Japan!’

America, definitely has the greatest education system in the world!?
