    http://twitter.com/chrispirillo - TechCrunch had a great title for a recent article: "Just Because Google Exists Doesn't Mean You Should Stop Asking People Things." We get annoyed when co-workers or bosses ask us silly questions that they themselves could have Googled. However, the bigger issue is whether or not we are so reliant on Google that we are dumbing ourselves down? The Pope thinks that the Internet is increasing the risk of a "sense of solitude and disorientation" and basically numbing us, calling it an "educational emergency." - http://youtube.com/wilsontech1
