Life before Google

Life before Google

I found this picture and tried to remember what it was like not being able to “look something up”. I can’t really remember, I just remember how it became easier and easier to find things out, recall who the actor in that movie was, finding out the author of a book, looking up the correct spelling of a word and so on…

Information is taken for granted these days but we need to be careful; relying too much on digital media could backfire… I have heard of people who store their pictures on facebook and nowhere else. What happens if facebook decides to go offline… for good? What about wikipedia? Or google?  Or even worse, what if governments do decide we have too much freedom online and implement the infamous kill switch?

Just a thought…
