When I run into something that I don't know, I google. This morning Fresh Air from WHYY had William Macy as a guest. I made educated guess from his comment about starring in Fargo as a car salesman. But I couldn't quite picture how he looked like. I googled. Within a second I had 16 photos of William Macy on my iPhone.
I can get to the answer instantly for those questions with definite answers. Retrieving facts is largely a solved problem. If someone has uploaded something about the fact, search engines will get me the answer.
But there are still lot of things that I cannot search. Things like when was the last time you noticed something was broken, or what ideas did you have recently to improve your quality of life are a few examples. These are questions that everyone has as we live our lives. But they are not possible to search because they are not available on the internet.
