4. Technology's Influence On The Masses
After a user asked if technology would gradually make the masses less intelligent, Gates stressed that he didn't think that would be the case. He said that technology was instead helping to solve complex global issues.
"Technology is not making people less intelligent," he wrote. "If you just look at the complexity people like in entertainment you can see a big change over my lifetime. Technology is letting people get their questions answered better so they stay more curious. It makes it easier to know a lot of topics which turns out to be pretty important to contribute to solving complex problems."
