Watching the video “did you know 2.0” opened my eyes to just how drastically the world is changing. I knew about the digital era and all that, but what i didn’t have was a grasp on just how far it had come in such a short time, and more over, how quickly it is picking up speed. With the exponential growth that takes place not only in the power of computers but also of the content that people are loading onto the internet, we, as a society, are being exposed to an ever increasing amount of information. It now becomes our duty to not just accept all this information we are receiving, but also to think critically about where it is coming from. Who is the source? Are they reputable? It is only after we have learned to filter the good information from the junk that we can begin to start using this new tool and its endless potential.
