Summary
so much info is available nowaways via the Internet that its hard to know whats good info and whats not; theres no doubt that info is easier to come by now (on all topics from health concerns to building a car to where to shop for best deals, etc) and that can be a very good thing but it could also be viewed as too much a good thing; whose info can you trust; whats the qualilty of the info avail; is it biased, is it influenced by advertising, is it bogus; is a google world necessarily an informed world; affects of 24 hr news cycles; print vs online research; blogs; what efforts are being made to address these issues and what are the ramifications.
