Prosthetic Knowledge: Information that a person does not know but can access as needed using technology — Rich OglesbyThe Internet is the primary source of prosthetic knowledge, where any person could acquire instant knowledge of something, any subject, event or character, in an easy and approachable way. This visual and written data is part of the present and without any doubt of the future, but what's going to happen for now on? Is it going to be kept and saved forever?
The hypothetical disappearance of the World Wide Web makes us think that it would be a major disaster. All communication via web, information, knowledge, shopping, bank accounts, it would be impossible and leaks, theft and privacy invasion would be inevitable and catastrophic. The practical and sociological magnitude of internet is completely undeniable.Therefore, Save appears as an analogy to the 'time capsule' concept as an enhancement to the importance of the Internet since the firts modems, relating to the technological future of next generations.
