Thought dump on Technology

All of us know how technology is winning over people’s lives, it has certainly made us move in an unbelievably fast rate.

As the saying goes, If you don’t know it, google it!

I have noticed in many occasions where I get engaged in a conversation with someone and they say proudly “wwwwell I don’t use the internet” or “I don’t use email” !!! For those who have this attitude out there, I’m not criticizing you but you better get a hold of this vast ocean of knowledge and convenience, unless if you are some monk who wants to spend rest of his life sitting and meditating with crossed legs on a standing wooden stick, or sitting on your head – body upside down with crossed legs – then I respect your decision. 

Now we are in the information age, where we have access to vast sources of knowledge. A man in the 1950s has incredibly less amount of info than a man living in 2011.

Some assumptions are available out there that estimate google searches reach to 2 billion queries per day!

Here’s a funny definition of the word “Googler” taken from www.urbandictionary.com 

  Googler:  
 
A person that appears to be very smart to when you talk online , but you find out that he just uses google to find out everything.
 
Clif: I was talking to Brett online and he knows some much about the Kinks.
Chapin: Well he’s just probably a googler because he doesn’t seem like a Kinks fan.
Clif: Yea your probably right because he was just basically saying their height’s and birth dates.
