Why I Love Media..

.. is because I can become an expert at anything. Wether I want to learn how to cook a traditional cantonese meal, cure acne or figure out how to build a website myself, it is all within reach thanks to media. Experts in all field are writing books and blogs, sharing the most crucial information and lessons that took them years to perfect a craft, for you to read within sometimes as little as 15 minutes. There are many documentaries that will teach you all you need to know about subject X in just an hour. Podcasts feed your brain with new research while you are on the go. Never before was it so easy and quick to learn something.

In the lectures we discussed how people soon will have chips in their brains making them smarter. However, I feel that we already had a “software update”, as the human species, by sharing our experiences to make it easier for others to learn and adapt. We are able to feed our knowledge easier and faster than ever before.
