B.G - Before Google. Will technology become such a world changing event, that this period of time becomes a time reference to history; akin to a person changing period / event that produced B.C (B.C.E) / A.D?


B.G. (Before Google) “The Era in which humans lived before the search engine; Google”(1).

Today I came across the above abbreviation. I’d never heard of B.G before, but of course I know what it means.

Upon reflecting, it will be interesting if in a hundred or even a thousand years time; if B.G. becomes a time reference, to the general but profound impact that computer based technology, including Smartphone’s, the internet, and social network working have had on the world.

Will technology become such a world changing event, that this period of time becomes a time reference to history; akin to a person changing period / event that produced B.C (B.C.E) / A.D?

Time will tell ….
