Google – The death of ignorance.

If you are reading this post, Chances are you know Google. Every once in a while, a product or service will come along and change our lives as we know it. Google was one of them. Google single-handedly killed ignorance, or should I say – Google killed the excuse; the excuse of not knowing, because by simply saying you don’t know…. the only most common reply you will get is: “Google it!”. In a world where information is so easily and readily accessible, you have no excuse.

Google it. Google went from a name that had no meaning to a small start-up operating out of a garage, to a public company, and now, google is a verb. I was brought up in a culture where everything was spoon fed to me, I came from a country where the education system discouraged creativity and shunned innovation. It was a world where the less you question, the better it is for you; the less you dig, the longer you survive. That was the world I lived in, that was all I knew, until I left. Over here I learned that you have to search for your dreams, you have to know what you want to achieve and work towards it. No one is going to do it for you, no one is going to help you unless you ask.

Google made that it all very easy. It’s all out there, all you have to do is search for it, all you need is the hunger for knowledge, you just have to want to learn. 20 years ago people would go to the library and search for information. Now, you just google it.
