Because a smart phone is exceedingly more efficient than a library at finding information, in just about every way. I don't understand this idea that we should slow our progress specifically to keep books or libraries, or anything else. Of course, I do not think we should get rid of existing libraries or books, but this idea that we need to 'slow down' is completely contrary to everything I feel about technology. We would not reserve ourselves to horse bound carriages when most people can drive a car.

But I think we should scale back a bit and enjoy the simpler things, like books and libraries.  I agree
