If Google search had been available in the 1960s, it would require typing on a typewriter, using punch cards (if you were really state-of-the-art), and waiting for results to slowly type in. You can try out Google60 to get a feel of what that would have been like. In reality, we didn't have search engines, but we had typewriters and teletypes. If you really wanted to search for information, you went to the library. Or you listened on the party line to get local gossip. I used Google60 yesterday, and while the search results typed out very slowly, I had the opportunity to read every word, and realized how much information I usually miss. Link -via b3ta
