Within a few years we will be totally dependent on the web for any kind of information. The books are slowly disappearing, the encyclopedias, which our grandparents bought with sacrifice, sometimes paying for years, are on the verge of extinction. Now we prefer googling.
I don’t know about you, but I struggle a lot to disentangle myself, to select, to make sure that I am reading correct information, I happen to average the quantity of things I find, which in some cases even diverge.
And also no one wonders what would happen if there was even a simple blackout.
A printed book can age, can be burned, it is true, but it can never be changed. The info on the internet instead yes. In fact the reality is that they can be altered, changed, purged, censored, banned.
This should terrify us.
But apparently not.
