Spreading the Word: 2’000 year-old history of ‘Googling’

Today I share with you a an interesting article about the history of knowledge storage and search. In short – about libraries. I found it fascinating to learn how people developed improved ways of storing, codifying and searching for information. Have you ever heard about the great ancient library of Alexandria? Those are the beginnings of modern search engines like Google. Enjoy!

Keeping up the “Spreading the Word” tradition, every Thursday I hope to share with you an article I’ve read or a video I’ve seen and considered it to be inspiring or enlightening. I feel it is important to take good care not just of our physical but also of our mental well-being. Humans have always turned and returned to storytelling. My Thursdays’ “Spreading the Word” articles are an online version of sharing worthwhile stories.   

keep exploring and storytelling!
