Yes, you heard me right. It’s time for yet another installment of our Educational Quotes series. Today, I would like us to ponder this famous quote by an contemperary librarian at Yale.
“We’re drowning in information and starving for knowledge”
– Rutherford Rogers
These words were said a few decades ago and they are even truer in this time and age. We now have access to loads and loads of information, the indexed web alone is estimated to contain 40 billion pages! Considering all of this, one has to ask the question; has this overflow of information really made us more knowledgeble?
I personally do not think so, as knowledge does not equal information. Do you agree to the above quote or do you disagree? Please share your comments below 🙂
