Google replaces our memories (20)

What is left for us, when Google knows everything there is to know?

Google doesn't know what I ate for breakfast this morning!

It's lame how Google gets all the credit for the Internet. The Internet is the reason you can find all this stuff easily; Google is just one of several effective ways to look it up.

And lately I've stopped using Google as much since so much general information can be found on Wikipedia by just going to the article on the subject I'm interested in.

Wikipedia owns. If it were a girl, I'd try to seduce it, and marry it, only to be shot down and huddle in the pool of my own self disworth (ry

Google knows absolutely nothing about "dogybutss", which, prepended with a #, is the name of an IRC channel I visited for years during my childhood. So I don't think Google is going to replace my memory anytime soon.

I also have a robots.txt that blocks them (along with all other spiders) from accessing my blog and personal files.

My prediction: Increasingly, people will withdraw from the public Internet because they don't want Google to replace their life.

Well, they do now!!

I agree with your prediction. Look at LiveJournal, for example. A lot of people are going friends-only, and not just because they feel emo.

No I won't look at livejournal.

15 Name: Anonymous Addict : 2005-12-22 01:10 ID:qWEzvFIC

And neither will Google.

Thank goodness.

No! Google loves to look at LiveJournal.

In fact, when Google reaches a LiveJournal page that says "NO-CACHE" or "Friends only", it moans "Cockblock!"
