Internet as Oracle

It occurred to me the other day that I was offically old and could be put in the category of those who tell tales of how "when I was a kid we walked 5 miles to school"...club. Only the modern version of Iam old story sounds a little more updated. When I was a kid we had to go to the library to look up infrmation... on microphiche...microfish...what's that?

In my university days (in the late 90s) we had archaic email that very few people could use...no hotmail then... it was like an FTP application. The only people you could email were other people in Universities brave enought o go to the computer centres and get an email account as well.

Now as I ponder the great questions of the universe...I email the Interent oracle...and hope this communal mind has more brilliant insights than having to ponder the universe over a cup of Java...
