Before: Without internet access, we had to do a lot of legwork to find the information we were looking for. We then found ways to memorize and remember the things we needed to know. The next time we needed to remember that information, we were likely to remember it because we took the time to research it and use mental devices (like visual memory, mneumonic devices, etc) to remember it.
Now: When we need to know something, we turn to our trusty computers and look it up. Since the information is so readily available, we don’t often take the time to encode the information into our brains. So the next time we need to remember that information, it is likely that we’ll need to look it up again.
