Do you remember the show where adults were pitted against young children as they vied for the right to say, “I am smarter than a 5th Grader.”
I often reflect upon that show whenever I use my phone to answer a question. Now days, you can ask anybody anything and within a few clicks and swipes they can rattle off the answer. Which leads me back to my question, “Are we smarter than our smartphones?”
I am trying to remember the time before the smartphone. Many questions must have gone unanswered for hours, ending with late night calls back to our friends saying such things as, “Dude, Dana Plato was the actress on Diff'rent Strokes, not Facts of Life.”

Something more relatable might be, “Which small business, unmanaged switch wouldwork best for my network?” Or, “What the heck is OpenFlow?”
I am proud to say the answers to these and many more questions can be found just as easily as, “Who came first DickSargent or DickYork?”
