I can understand the argument, however, it depends on the invidividual.
If you spend your entire time on the internet on MySpace and YouTube, you won't learn a lot. I spend a lot of time on the internet literally researching and harvesting anything I am interested in. I have gained so much knowledge in a lot of areas over the past few years.
For me the internet is one big encyclopedia and I'm loving it
I will tell you what I love about the net though. So many points of view! And especially for history for example this is something that is strived for, biased or not. To get the clearest picture of what really happened you must see the point from as many angles as possible and the internet makes that so easy If you wanted to do that with books you'd have to search library after library, book by book lol.
