25 years ago, scientists at CERN created the World Wide Web. Since then, the Internet has transformed the way we communicate, the way we do business and even the way we live. In many ways, the ideas that gave birth to Google, Facebook, Twitter and so many others have now really transformed our lives and this has brought us many real benefits such as a more connected society.

However, there are also some downsides to this. Today, the average person has an astounding amount of personal information online, and we add to this online information every single time we post on Facebook, each time we search on Google and each time we send an e-mail.

Our data now lasts forever, so your data can and will outlive you.

  1. Data have always done that. From old pictures to letters to books to clay tablets to relics and ruins and cave paintings.

      • And data storage becomes obsolete. The NASA records form the Pioneer and other projects from the 70s is already unreadable. Anyway, I’ll stop now. πŸ™‚

      • Oh no, I’m happy you share your thoughts!!! πŸ˜‰ πŸ™‚ Thank you writing πŸ™‚

  2. This post makes me think a lot. Especially just after my having internet connection problems.

  3. It is an interesting truth regarding this tool we’ve created. On the other hand, there is such a tremendous amount of data, is anyone really paying attention? A few of us. Maybe.

    Nice post.

  4. Anything from the heart is good
