Google is Your Friend βœ…

Please, please reply and tell me why is it that sometimes people refuse to do their own due diligence and look things up and instead direct questions that simply can be found on Google? I don't mean this to be snarky, but I actually do because I think it's flabbergasting. And it's also quite odd because isn't there great joy and a sense of purpose that comes from being able to answer your own question?

If you can type the question, you can search it on Google.com 😁 #people #wow #conversation #lazy #foolish

And then you realize, man, I'm at the bottom. You're at the bottom rung of a pyramid scheme, and you need to get your ass out of it. You need to go on Google and see if you're really selling insurance or not. Are you bilking these people out of their money? What kind of life have you? What are you doing that you can't figure things out on your own? Stop following people. Stop listening to people. Start making your own decisions

If you want to know, go talk to Dan Rather. He did a thing about it on Bill Maher years ago, well before the pandemic, before he was fired off CBS News. You guys even remember who Dan Rather is? Do you guys even remember true journalism? He was fired off CBS News. He's one of the last true journalists. And he warned us all about this. That was a long, long time ago, really, before the Internet, to be honest with you

You. Oh, my God. Thank you. Thank you. I'm pretty sure in my drafts there is a post about this, and they always come from triggering moments. And, Rooster, I think it's even more basic. It's literally when someone asks you a question, like, what time does a place open? Or like, I don't even know, like, dumb ass shit that they can Google

Damn it, Blair. That's why I prefaced it with, if you could teach my wife this first, then we could move forward. But that's what I'm telling you. She's the person that does that, asking the simple questions much of the time when she's holding her phone in her hand. So, yes, I'm just as baffled by this activity as both of you women are

But I do think that questions can facilitate some of that. I think too, there's a level of instant gratification within society today. We can get nearly anything and everything as quickly as possible. And to ask somebody else seems faster than having to word it just right or find just the right keywords that the search engine will pick it up will give us the result to what we're actually looking for

And yeah, I think we should just move away from the term Google it, because Google, I mean, that's another, just much more well established corporate tool. Yeah. All of these tech companies, you see what they're doing with social media. Let's stop saying Google it. Let's say search for it on the Internet

@SeekingPlumb

@RoosterCollins

Oh, my goodness. AI, that is an entire conversation in itself. But to the word Google, you know, I understand not wanting to give the corporate machine more fuel. On the other hand, there are some words that have just become their own thing, right? Because I can think of a few off the top of my head. So I grew up in the northeast part of the US, different states there, and we called the thing you blow your nose with a tissue. Right

With this brain chip that I got ten years ago with upgrade 46, it's like, what is the future that we're looking forward to? We could talk about words, we could talk about logos, as it's referred to as, but our words are different than the words of people in other countries because they speak different languages

But then once we started saying the black plague, it became a specific disease that we needed to identify in history. So we no longer use the word plague because we bookmarked that in history for the black peg. And then we had to move on to other words to describe the natural currents of disease and death in humanity. Whether it's bacterial, viral, or whatever it is, we all die. Illness kills us. It doesn't matter if it's a bacteria or a virus

So in context of a social circle, whether family, friends, and someone fielding a question out to the group that can be searched online or on social media as it relates to an experience or a process, I'm okay with that. Let me give an example. So let's say if someone were to say, hey, I am considering getting an IUD and I would like to hear of others'experiences with the insertion process

I don't know that language can be written in stone, ever. I mean, of course, literally, you talked about emojis. Hieroglyphs would have been the ancient emojis. You know what I mean? And sure, additional definitions have been added to words that we've already had, but we also come up with new words all the time. And even, like, words that have certain meaning today didn't originally have those meanings. I mean, you even highlighted the word plague

I'm a big fan of doing it in camera and then maybe altering the color a little bit. But other than that, we should have this strict journalistic code and we just do not have it in this country anymore. And I think you can see that evidenced by Sports Illustrated. There's a lot of talk about why they went down and what it was. Well, simple fact is there was money laundering involved. I think $60 million, someone said bankrupted their magazine

@SeekingPlumb Connection vs. Questions #people #community #behavior #online #engagement

But I also lean into using AI and now I usually ask AI stuff and then I then take that content and then throw that into Google or throw that into Bing and kind of have a conversation of multiple platforms and then kind of get out what I'm looking for

Yes. Thank you. First of all, I am definitely guilty of some of those moments, but not necessarily asking someone Google questions, although sometimes I do more so interrupting someone when they're in their thought. Especially in my daily job, working with my boss so closely on the phone, sometimes I will be like, no, wait a minute, what about this? And then she'll be like, no. So I'm definitely guilty of that and I'm working on that

I'm not saying by any stretch of the imagination that Google or any search engine is bad. I'm saying these things are different than they once were, for good and bad. I'm still using them, still rely on them. I'd be lost without the Internet and the ability to search for things. But it's harder to find the things I'm looking for when modifying the things I enter into

Oh, my goodness. How could I forget the literal brick and mortar library? I haven't been in one in ages because I use the audiobooks, which is algorithms giving me. I'm like, come on now. There's more here that I'd like to be exposed to. Oh, the library. Yes. Even, like, grocery shopping. I haven't been in a grocery store in years because I do it all online and have it delivered, which is a huge help

Like, you can never expect anything from other people that you aren't giving from yourself or aren't doing for yourself. So just the true essence of authenticity is never more realer or more meaningful than when you become a parent. And then I guess my third biggest lesson is that, and I've learned this actually from a random TikTok that I saw and then kind of had to reflect upon it and was like, oh, so true

@SeekingPlumb New idea πŸ’‘ #bias #technology #search #people #assumptions

So like what you could do in the library, but a digitized version of that online that is not biased and is literally based on the keywords you're searching, is going to give you the output regarding anything that touches it in that resource absent, and regardless of whatever biases exist within the mind of the searcher. So kind of like if you were looking to understand more around bird ovulation. You don't want to know about bird ovulation just in your locale, because that is not what you're searching

@DressingRoom8 ⚠️ Weird territory ahead. πŸ€ͺ

So the corkscrew and for the duck, for other birds, they can do their business with the woman. But then they leave. I can't remember if they leave a part of their body behind or something else behind, and it plugs her up. So essentially nobody else can get in there. And she basically is stoppered up until she pops out. Neg. Right. Anyway. But there's been very little research done about the vagina

And if we try to eliminate it 100%, is there even humanity left? What is that? Right? I don't know. There's a lot of questions around some of this. And yet, it's important for us to recognize that biases do exist and what do we do with them? Right. Because there's obviously things that need to change because of biases. But anyway, yeah, I'll stop now

Just like when we have to write something and we have to double check the grammar, we just, okay, we're doing hiring processes. Let's double check our bias checks. Let's double check. Let's make sure we're putting things in place that counteract the biases that are inevitably to happen. So I did want to share this link that I thought you'd get a kick at

It was interesting to see some of the things they talked about with respect to a supposed setting in Google. I'm still a bit skeptical because I have questions, but I don't need to get into the nitty gritty of it here with respect to bias and so on. I do think, from my experience comparing search engines today to the past, that I haven't come across a search engine that does what it did in the past. And I suppose that's the nature of the beast, right?

You know, thanks to Google and I got so many interactions, people were going crazy on that post. They thought it was entirely funny. At the same time, it was my point to actually illustrate the fact that if you don't know something, you could actually use Google. And Google is not the only resource that we can possibly use, but it's the most available, I would say the most common resource that people can remember to go to

It. Yeah, it'll be interesting to see. Just as technology continues to enhance just kind of where we go with seeing how things like bias play out in content knowledge, share consumption. But then also how are we utilizing some of this technology to better enhance how to keep things like bias in back, but also just making sure that people are still going to have safe spaces in their homes, in the workplace, et cetera, and

AI is now not a replacement for the human mind or the human ability, but it is definitely a starting point for content ideation, for content curation, for researching. I mean, there's so many ways that you can leverage AI to the point where your own brain is just going to be like, just sitting on, staying in neutral and not necessarily having to think as hard and cultivate as hard
