"Does the Internet make children lazy or smart? /Discuss"The poster has a picture of a child wearing a dunce's cap. Do you know the one I mean? I was talking about it with my wife the English teacher in the car this morning. She said that, when she was in Primary school, she was picked to take part in a debate. The subject of the debate? It was asking if television makes children smart or stupid!

P.S. I had a quick Google to see if anyone else was talking about this, or to see if there was an image of the poster I could direct people to. Didn't find the poster, but did find a marketing blog, Offbrand, who questions the cynical motives behind AOL's campaign. Not sure who writes this blog, but his/her post title is much better than mine!
