Google Learning: What is the…?

I’m having to invent new ways of stumbling upon things to learn, so I typed “what is the” into Google Australia (that’s where I live now) to see what Autocomplete would throw at me. Here’s the five questions it spat out:

And I’ve now learned the answer to all five:

1. What is the time?
It’s 7.39pm

2. What is the internet?
It’s a worldwide collection of computer networks, cooperating with each other to exchange data using a common software standard. Fascinating!

3. What is the dreaming?
The Dreaming is an Aboriginal term for when the Ancestral Beings moved across the land and created life and significant geographic features.

4. What is the carbon tax?
A carbon tax is an environmental tax that is levied on the carbon content of fuels.

5. What is the time in London?
It’s 10.39am.

How informative!
