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.


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.
