  2. 2. “The acquisition of knowledge used to mean pursuing a prescribed path and then getting to the knowledge desired when the path reached there. The seeker had to jump through the hoops left by his predecessors. Now, the seeker can just get the answer. And in some cases—many cases even—this is a terrific thing…. We only get into trouble if we equate such cherry-picked knowledge with the kind one gets pursuing a genuine inquiry” (57). - Douglas Rushkoff, “Program or Be Programmed”
