Dealing with Internet

The Internet is considered a disruptive technology.  We have all changed our habits as the result of its adoption and progression in our society.  A new article by Jeff Jarvis, "Not So Fast," that appeared on the blog, Think With Google (www.thinkwithgoogle.com/quarterly), makes a parallel with Gutenberg's invention - the printing press -- and all the structures that it disrupted over time.  He cites changes, due to the Internet, for:
  • Retail
  • Postal services
  • Newspapers & magazines
  • Government
Try the new book, "Too Big to Know," by David Weinberger and follow the conversation that was started by the University of Southern Denmark, called "the Gutenberg parenthsis."  The most important lines, to me, in this article are: "this change in our mental map of information affects our cognition of our world... how we understand the world around us is evolving..."

Find & Learn - all about the very new dynamic in finding information, digesting and learning from it, and moving on.
