Getting information off the internet is like taking a drink from a fire hydrant.
Have you ever felt this way? I don’t think I have. I understand the sentiment, but I’m so used to getting “about 1,550,000,000 results (0.22 seconds)” that the vastness of the internet hasn’t set in.
I’m part of the Millennial generation, a people immersed in technology like no generation that’s come before. If I am curious about something, I go to Google—not the library. If I want to connect with a distant friend, I go to email—not my phone. My portable phone, that is. When my parents were young, cell phones just weren’t around.
Technology has blossomed in the decades just before and after I was born. If I’d grown up 30 years ago, before this Information Age, I would not have had such easy access to the world’s knowledge. This is a marvelous resource.
