When my generation was still crunching through their academic degrees in the 90-s, knowledge had some added value. Despite the fact that Internet and search engines had already existed back then, we still obtained most of our knowledge from books. When University Professor wanted his students to learn more about the subject of the course, he recommended a book he thought worthy of reading.
Now many students trust Google and Wikipedia to provide them with all the needed information, sincerely trusting that “million lemmings are never wrong”…
But reality says otherwise. In many important spheres the real knowledge still lies in the hands of chosen elite of professionals. And they rarely contribute to Wikipedia, for the simple fact that they are: a) too busy; b) disagree about most subjects.
So someone who proudly adds “Using Internet Search Engines” to his or her CV should remember one simple thing: in order to search for something meaningful you have initially to know a lot about the subject. Otherwise you’ll be forever walking in circles among other “experts”.
