Analogue vs Digital: Information Storage

In search for information, people once used to go to libraries. Fortunately, there were librarians helping you to find the information you were looking for. Although libraries are not (yet) extinct, the internet is trying to take over.

The world’s biggest online search engine data centers are enormous. Continuously they process all information to make sure you can access it anytime, anywhere. They are the brains of Mr. Google, the librarian that finds your information in less than a second.

It is a mistake to claim that "all information" is available in data centers. There is an enormous wealth of history, culture, and information, that has not (and likely will never be) digitized.

Should men be able to give birth to children?


Joyce Nabuurs: To me this question seems to be a logical next step in the emancipation movement of the past century. More and more women entered the workspace, but the responsibility for pregnancy and childrearing remained female.
