You heard it at the water cooler. Or was it during passage gossip? You can’t remember – but it doesn’t matter, you heard it through the grapevine. Information came to you by word of mouth.
Things have changed. These days you hear it by word of mouse. Yes, news is only a mouse click away. You hear it via Twitter, or Plurk, or Facebook, or a blog, or a wiki, or an email.
Is there a difference? Not really, except that the world has shrunk incredibly. And as the world gets smaller, your sources of information get more and bigger.
No longer do you have to depend for information on a few people who happen to be working in your office, or live in your house, or in your neighborhood – folks who are probably as uninformed as you are. With the click of a button you have access to world experts – the world’s information is on tap for you. Accurate information – relevant information.
Are we not privileged to live in this wonderful information age?
