You have a plethora of information at your finger tips; products, ideas and people you never could have imagined. We take advantage of this fact as it’s something we’ve had access to all our conscious lives. Your parents, grandparents, almost anyone over the age of 40 will tell you that you have it easy. What defines easy though?

Not 5 minutes ago, I went to Google and searched for a technology article to plagiarise, but I decided that I’d use my own creativity instead. Now, whether you’ll enjoy my words or not is up to you, but I’m using ‘you’ in a generic sense as once this is posted on the site, it is open to everyone who has a viable internet connection; that is billions of people with the ability to hear my voice. With the sheer amount of websites owned by big companies and independent sites from people like you and me on sub-domains, we can easily look at the Internet as a whole other universe in itself.

I would like to end this short article by showing you the sheer craziness of what certain sites achieve. If you visit the Library of Babel on your browser, you can see for yourself. This site contains every combination of letters physically possible; it contains everything ever written, and everything that could be written, including this article itself.
