(editorial note: This blog post first appeared on my personal blog, Kellypuffs, but it is relevant for this audience as well, with a few minor tweaks. So here you are!
I love this poster. There is a high-res PDF version available if you click through, and I recommend it. Lots of wisdom here. It particularly resonates with me as it pertains to knowledge.
Kids, remember back when….
If you are “of a certain age”, you know what I’m talking about, and we are probably the last generation that will.
If you aren’t, you have no freaking CLUE what I’m talking about because you are a Child of t’Internets and you are free to know and grow. (cue hippy music). The internet, if you are lucky enough to have access to it and a way to view it, provides 24/7 access to an unfathomable amount of knowledge, anytime, anywhere.
Let that sink in, people. Anytime. Anywhere.
Better yet, t’internets has led to the democratization of knowledge …. one person, one voice. Or rather, many more voices, many more people contributing to our collective knowledge.
Need the original schematic/wiring diagram for a 1940s desk phone? It’s out there. Need to know why your bilateral destabilizer keeps shutting down? Someone else has probably experienced it and shared on a forum.
And here’s where I start getting all hippy-dippy, waving daisies, love and sunshine, because to me, this is just the coolest thing EVER. Ever. You can’t put this genie back in the bottle. Knowledge is no longer in the hands of a privileged few to be doled out to the worthy. Knowledge is being openly shared and recorded, so that others may benefit.
Maybe THIS is the dawning of the Age of Aquarius?
