Applications of the Extended Mind and the Mind

One way to approach the question of the extended mind is the phenomena and applications that are normally associated to it. Here, a generic list of ways of using various EM applications:

  • Notebook: extended memory, extended thinking
  • Evernote: ubiquitous and comprehensive extended memory
  • Mindmapping, MindNode: extended creativity
  • Calculator: extended calculation
  • Google, Wikipedia: extended declarative knowledge (dates, constants etc.)
  • Facebook: extended communcation, extended problem-solving
  • Diary: extended reflection
