A while back I created illustrations inspired by a series of articles written by Tim Wu on technological evolution for The New Yorker. The top illustration was based on part one: ''If A Time traveler Saw A Smartphone". In the article Wu addresses the difference between old fashion knowledge where we actually had to remember information and make it part of ourselves versus our more current form of information processing, where we have acces to more information than we can think of but it doesn't get stored within us the same way. As in it doesn't really become a part of us. The question is : What is more valuable to us as human beings. The illustration below was also based on the concept of technological evolution but addresses a different theme. Human interaction.
