is google killing general knowledge?

“this invention will induce forgetfulness in the souls of those who have learned it, because they will not need to exercise their memories, being able to rely on what is written…rather than, from within, their own unaided powers to call things to mind. so it’s not a remedy for memory, but for reminding, that you have discovered. and as for wisdom, you are equipping your pupils with only a semblance of it, not with truth.”
