Last week we read about Plato and the Googleplex and his experiences there. It's easy to see why he was perplexed by it. Google.... it's one of the most complex aspects of the internet. I do not remember a time where I didn't have access to it, and now it has become a daily part of my life. If you need to know when a store closes, why the sky is blue, or how to cook something, all you have to do is google it. If I ask my friends a question, and they don't know the answer, their immediate response is, "You have a phone, google it." That has become such a common phrase in today's society. Google was once just a noun, but as Rebecca Goldstein explains, "You know 'google' is a verb now. As in, you google whenever you want to know anything at all, any subject, big or small." Any question you have can be find on google. We never have to go with our questions unanswered again.
