I found an article that discusses how the internet is used and how computers and people who are using them create knowledge that can be used by others. The article writes about how mostly people have been using the world wide web in order to store and access mass amounts of data, data that is mostly media related. Obviously YouTube is included in this and just imagine all of the pictures, memes, gifs, and other things that populate and rule the internet for the mass majority of us. Although it doesn’t really seem like all of this media could be used for knowledge purposes i think that it is certainly the case with this generation. Think of all the pictures you see with the words on them or the videos, I mean really, does anyone remember Kony 2012? This media that we create and share and utilize is one of the largest ways i think that information is distributed all over the world. Its interesting really how much this stuff is used without our conscience knowledge.
