The wheat from the chaff

In response to the article written by Stefanie Olsen, "Intelligence in the Internet Age":

Prior to the printed (mechanical) word, knowledge was held by the rich and/or the academic elite. Mechanically printed books open knowledge to the masses. Without it, where would we be?

The Internet has done as much for modern society. Now the question for this age is, "Who is writing what we read, and what are their credentials?"

Modern knowledge distribution has brought about its own set of challenges. Just because it's written doesn't necessarily make it (true). Now we must use our native intelligence to separate the wheat from the chaff.
