The Age of Immediancy

May 7, 2009 at 5:22 pm (Uncategorized)

Julie Ní Gháibhain recently wrote and interesting post about the need for immediate information. Like Julie, with broadband and quicker internet access, such as on my phone, i can receive information instantly about anything that interests me.

But actually is there a downside to having such vast amount of information available to us at our fingertips, as she says?

In this age of instantaneous information, we come to expect instantaneous results; but is that a bad thing?

With sites like google and wikipedia, i find myself more educated about issues that otherwise, with limited internet access, id be ignorant to.
