The one area that I am not in complete agreement with Seth Godin is when he addressed the open book concept. To a certain extent I agree that there is no need to memorize every single piece of information there is. However, it does not seem right to encourage people to become dependent of a device for reference all the time and for every subject. In my personal experience, it has always been a plus to memorize basic knowledge and recall it whenever needed.
