An astute observer of culture and technology, Thompson has plenty of terms to share. In Smarter Than You Think, a smart yet scattered book, he champions the idea that the Internet is not, in fact, turning us into a society of facile thinkers. Even as the Internet alters old literacies, it creates new ones. And rather than a society of people enslaved by computer screens, he sees a world where people become solvers of puzzles, fluent manipulators of data, people who use Internet connectivity to break down barriers.
