Headline: We will not be outwitted by digital powers

Nutshell: The animal worked for us to get food, the steel machine worked for us to produce the goods, the Internet will work for us to expand our neighbourhood.

Vision: Our brain work may be outsourced. However, there is no reason to be outwitted by digital powers. The Internet is part of the "Intelligence Revolution." It creates a new social and cultural environment. It will work for us as any other neighbourhood.
