Week 4 #edcmooc | I would like to add some more RAM to my brain!

Week 4
Week 4

After last week’s focus on how computers seem to be becoming more and more human, we considered efforts to remodel the human in Week 4 of #edcmooc.  It is true that in recent years we are hearing about more and more bionic parts that can be added to the human body, either as enhancements or as replacements for worn-out parts. New devices, such as Google’s new glasses, will bring the Internet so much closer to our brains  — and this is just the start.

I remember that in the early days, a very common, quick fix for a computer that was slowing down was to add another stick of RAM.  Anyone out there planning to offer human RAM sticks?  I predict they will be a huge seller!
