"From the Ted Talk by Larry Page: Where's Google going next?"

Unscramble the Blue Letters

Zack Matere: Not long ago, I peatlnd a crop of poetaots. Then suddenly they started dying one after the other. I checked out the books and they didn't tell me much. So, I went and I did a search. ["Zack Matere, Farmer"] pottao deaiesss. One of the websites told me that ants could be the problem. It said, sprinkle wood ash over the ptlans. Then after a few days the ants disappeared. I got excited about the Internet. I have this friend who really would like to expand his business. So I went with him to the cyber cafe and we checked out several sites. When I met him next, he was going to put a windmill at the lcoal school. I felt proud because something that wasn't there before was suddenly there. I rzlaeied that not everybody can be able to aecscs what I was able to access. I thought that I need to have an Internet that my grandmother can use. So I thought about a notice board. A simple wooden notice borad. When I get information on my ponhe, I'm able to post the information on the notice board. So it's basically like a computer. I use the Internet to help people. I think I am searching for a better life for me and my neighbors. So many people have access to information, but there's no follow-up to that. I think the follow-up to that is our knowledge. When people have the knowledge, they can find sootiulns without having to helped out. Information is prfeowul, but it is how we use it that will define us.
