Enter Google. I still remember the first time I used Google - and someone mentioning it on an Internet Newsgroup. A site that indexed the Internet! How amazing is that! And this was back when the content of the Internet was 1/100th of what it is today - if not even smaller.
It is sad to me that many people think of the Internet, which is the largest database of information in the history of mankind, only in terms of Facebook. It is akin to watching an IMAX movie through a tiny peephole.
