“Information is powerful, but it is how we use it that will define us”

I can’t stop thinking about this video since I saw it yesterday. Especially the quote I used for the title of this post.

“Information is powerful, but it is how we use it that will define us”

Look past the fact that it is from Google and look at the power of information. Take note that this includes the internet but also a physical bulletin board.

Since I’m sharing vidoes, not something I do often here these days watch this one from the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation on Libraries and the digital divide

    Interesting how the captions are “corrected” to American English. Well, interesting as in irritating (to me at least). But, it is a great message overall.

    1. Lisa I noticed it as well. It’s curious I wonder if it was done because the editing was done by Americans or if the intended audience was American, if it was done with forethought or just happened etc.
