I was talking to someone the other day and they brought up how we used to remember phone numbers. I don't know any numbers anymore, not that I use my phone that much like most people but it's still backed up on my email where I dont have to remember and has a lockout option even if lost. On a side note those are good security precaution with phones. That's another asinine blog.

The other day, I forgot how long it took to hard boil eggs and instead of wasting the eggs or asking someone, I Googled it. Digital data helps us all and destroys the individual no matter how you spin it. We don't think so we think more.

Even the progression in academia is unnerving— I should know having been in college the last decade or so. There was a building you went to and got information. Then there was a machine with rules. The information was limited but all of it was good. Now there’s no building and you can pull the information from the sky. All of it has proof of a sort and none of it is untrue. Or maybe that’s not the case and a lot of it is valuable there’s some more true than others— thousands of buildings and as many books before you find one thing. Where’d our library of Alexandria go ?
