Unfortely, I have to vote "NO"
Perhaps this is somewhat hypocrisy in my side considering the fact that I spent lot of time browsing the internet to learn Dhamma, I still feel negative about the content and the reliability of the information.
In my opinion the final some is Zero even if we compare our lifestyle back to 2500 years ago.
However, I learned this by being there to see the fruitless of the information age.
I still feel the information and artificial intelligence system will throw us back to the stone age one day.

You mean like the internet becoming self-aware, and deciding to wipe out us humans? That would make a good science fiction film... :lol:

For the man who set all this in motion, the mushroom cloud was unfolding before his very eyes. “I was devastated,” Berners-Lee told me that morning in Washington, blocks from the White House. For a brief moment, as he recalled his reaction to the Web’s recent abuses, Berners-Lee quieted; he was virtually sorrowful. “Actually, physically—my mind and body were in a different state.” Then he went on to recount, at a staccato pace, and in elliptical passages, the pain in watching his creation so distorted.

We know even the Facebook creator regrets his invention after making billions of profit from it.
