The Internet informs. The media and the schools do not. Who wins this battle?

WIRED had a huge article about the digital visionaries who think that true democracy will emerge on the Internet.

Oh really? Even as our school system and our mainstream media have stopped doing their jobs?

If people know almost nothing about the world, how can they have an intelligent conversation about the day's trivia?

This is actually a big drama. We are all inside of it.

Here's a quick summary of a phenomenon that WIRED thought was worth 10,000 words, more or less.

My bottom line: The Internet does allow vast world-wide interaction between people. But if everybody is ignorant about the absolute basics, what good can come of it all? In short, we have got to persuade our schools and our media to get back in the business of presenting facts.
