The internet is not new. It’s just a new way of doing things, and it lets us search for and find information faster if we train our brains how to use it. Imagine the evolution that will grow out of that.
Some of the information we come across in our lives is wrong, no matter where we find it, both on purpose and accidentally, and that’s always happened. (Even mom was wrong about that whole swimming after eating thing.)
But don’t fool yourself: we aren’t doing something new, we’re just doing it in a different way.
Don’t be intimidated; we aren’t doing something impossible, just more complicated.
Just do something with it. It’s the library of Alexandria, check it out!
P.S. And don’t set your assumptions in concrete and never break them apart to see if they still hold up. Even encyclopedias got updated every so often.
