google and the future
mom caught the last few minutes. i watched a few- but as it's an hour long- i will go back and watch it all later. quick thought on the 15 minutes or so i caught- being 'old school' i worry about the internet being used as the ultimate propaganda tool. we have seen it with print media and tv/radio. if most of the world is plugged in- someone somewhere has the authority to determine what ends up online. i am a proponent of 'hard copies'- and while the tree hugger in me likes saving trees- i also like a paper trail. completely electronic leaves us vulnerable and being completely plugged in all of the time- well, i am suspicious. feel free to watch and let me know your thoughts- i will watch it in it's entirety later.
