Self Reliance…

Interesting read from the NYT.

Knowing that you can always call for help in an emergency makes people feel safer. But they also tether people more closely and constantly to others, and in recent months a growing number of experts have identified and begun to study a distinct downside in that: cellphone use may be making us less autonomous and less capable of solving problems on our own, even when the answers are right in front of us.

Replace cell phones with email and you’ve got the same challenge. The more people are connecting the less self reliant they are becoming. While I agree that the best decisions are made through a set of dialogues total connectivity shouldn’t be used as an excuse for accountable decision making by the individual…
