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.

What is your view on the coronavirus?


Koert van Mensvoort: The virus makes us aware of other lifeforms with other perspectives, desires and needs. It also teaches us that we are one humanity. These viral invaders don’t discriminate on the basis of nationality, race, income, social status, political or sexual preference. We are together and must work together to overcome. Stay safe.
