I actually went to the library and got a book.
Yep, and I have a recurring subscription to Britannica.
In the post-Google world it is now social that makes the recommendations for anything
I see that every day with my 24 year old daughter using Facebook, she doesn't even read the news since it appears on there just as quick.
"dad, I can't find anything"
I had precisely this situation last night. My daughter wanted a specific music track and could only find it on itunes where she does not have an account. She'd looked everywhere and finally turned to me and being a webmaster I knew precisely the terms to enter and bingo, which version do you want?
She couldn't believe it but also admitted she would never have considered entering the terms I had therefore maybe G is broken for the average user, certainly I know I have to be very specific when searching but even then there is still reprocessed, ripped-off and many times incorrect answers.
