Have we ever thought of the first thing that we do when we are not aware of something? Personally I Google it. . . . I want to learn about it. . . . Even if they are health symptoms, I Google it. Is a process that we take it as granted since we belong in information generation. However have we asked our parents or even our grand-parents about that??????? When my grand-mother saw internet she said “Do Germans spy us from that” (With all the respect to Germans but you have left your sign after world war 2 :P)……..
Her mind went that someone can observe your actions and learn about you through internet. Absolutely normal reaction in my eyes... In the same way it can have implications in organizations as well. Tomorrow we can use it for obtaining information from every corner of the world instantly. Why we shouldn¢t do so?
However there is something that made me be cautious about internet and generally the easy access to information. . . How we evaluate it? There is a lot of information out there? How we judge their use? Tough I think to give an answer on that! It is our theory that will manipulate and translate all that information into knowledge. However on what is that theory based?
The only sure is that we should be very cautious about the sources we use as well as our aim….. I do not have any idea on that????
