Last night I raised the question: Is there anything Google can’t do?
Years ago, at a seminar on investigative journalism, a veteran reporter suggested that the most underrated tool for digging out information is the phone book. Everyone’s in there, more or less. For years I took that to heart. But lately Google has proven much more valuable for the same sort of thing.
But in my recuperation from knee surgery, I’ve needed a book of a certain heft. It has to be the right height to stand on, stepping up and down over and over to strengthen my quad.
Google can’t do that.
