We live in amazing times. I think about how the library in Alexandria was a marvel of it's time and how much knowledge was stored there that people could access and then think of today.
I saw a tweet about a musical group tonight and within less than a minute I was looking at some of their videos on YouTube. It could have been even more magical, I have been walking through a store, heard a song being played, Shazamed it on my phone and in no time at all I would have bought the album on my phone and it would waiting for me in iTunes on my computer when I got home.
This can sometimes be a bad thing. I will, with much shame, admit that once I was in a store, heard a song I liked the sound of, Shazamed it and to my great dismay was informed by my phone that I liked the sound of a One Direction song.
The shear scale of the amount of information that we have available to us and more importantly ,I believe, the speed at which we have access to it is amazing. We are living in the future.
Of course it can all seem very overwhelming. But I believe that technology will solve that problem too.
The key thing to remember is that it's just information, these things are all just tools, it is up to us the people to decide how to best utilise them.
