But what about our information economy?
I'm just thinking here but as I went to Google for the umpteenth time today in support of my work, the thought occurred to me: "what would I do without Google?" I realized that in many ways, Google has be come as indispensable to me as Windows my computer or the Internet.
I used to tease my late friend, Marc Orchant, that "Search is the new UI" but that may be a truer statement than I thought. If Google were to suddenly tumble, I wonder what the impact would be on our information economy?
I'm just thinking out loud [because it's more fun than studying or processing my email].
