“Information is not Knowledge” – Albert Einstein

“Wise Men speak because they have something to say.  Fools speak because they have to say something” – Plato

Recently, there has been a shift in the ability of information.  Before the internet became prominent, most information was accurate and true.  Most sources were truthful and trustworthy.  If you looked up a fact or spoke with someone, you were confident that what you found was true.

With the dawn of the internet, information flooded the public domain.  Information, facts, and sources became wildly available.  The worst part?  Lies and untruths became available.  Inaccurate websites and information came into the internet and flooded our minds.

For example, many sites can share information that may seem true, but is completely inaccurate.  It is important to pay attention to what resources you are consuming.  Consider these tips to identify if the information is accurate and true:

  • it comes from a credible person or professional
  • it has a dmain name as .org,.gov, or.edu
  • it references accurate and credible outside organizations
  • it comes from a credible organization or company

It something seems off or too good to be true, it probably is.  Use your head and question if the information you are accessing is true.  As Always, Eat, Move, and Improve!
