The Internet – Evidence of Evolution

What you know isn’t nearly as important as your ability to find it.
We, my family and I, have had some version of broadband in our homes since 2001.  I was fortunate to have come upon an R&D job that put me in front of a T1 line and that story was written.  I can probably said that my three month stint annoying our cable company to get it into our neighborhood was paramount creating the city wide roll out.  I had to do it.  I had to have that power in my hands daily.  Most people believe that money, position, connection represents power.  I never bought into that, my time, dating back to card catalogs at the library taught me well; power is in knowing.  It is preparation and presentation.  It is expression and illusion.  Raw data, information from sources, is just a launching pad of pure development.  Development of our wisdom, of our essence.
I don’t believe, and my years helping others has proven this, the vast majority of people just don’t get the internet.  That can’t grasp the sheer power of learning, of knowing.  Yes, there are down sides but there are down sides in getting out of bed as well.  You don’t worry about that do you?  The truth is information is what we do.  We perceptual creatures. We learn whether we like it our not.  It is an utter violation of our existence and an impossible situation- to not learn.  We can soak up data faster then we can get it-potentially.  In fact, if you are not drinking from the well- well, your dead.  Amusingly, to this day, I have people even as they are updating their status on Facebook, wax poetic about the evils of the internet.  I still laugh at them.  To say information is evil is akin to saying the sun is just a ball of gas.  Really, really- are you missing the point.
