How shall I know?
In yesterday's post, Laugh Until You Cry , I was telling you about my effort to not know something and just wonder about the answer instead. The compulsion to seek out an answer, any answer, electronically is strong. There is a gushing waterfall of comments, ideas, pieces of information saturating our inclination to wonder. This guy, Pete Holmes, made me laugh really hard about search engines and how they are so efficient at dispensing information that they have zapped the wonder out of everything. He bemoans our inability to be "impregnated with wonder". He compares google to having a "drunk know-it-all in your pocket." I did not laugh so hard I cried, but I got pretty close.
