It shares the same information you can glance at on an Android phone — the weather, the time, and a glance at the top headlines — but somehow it makes even more sense on a bathroom mirror. It’s the kind of sleek near-future sci-fi of Ex Machina and Gorilla Glass concept videos, where every translucent surface in your world seamlessly springs to life with information from the cloud.
I liked this “Google Classic” postcard the moment I first saw it. We live in a world of quick searches and instant answers. I dream of a search engine that can help us find not answers, but better questions. And that takes time and deep practice.
Imagine you search for something and there’s a popup message that reads “Please allow 30 days for search results.” How would you react?
Remember that Google does not have all the answers. In fact, as I see it, many of the essential answers lie within us, and to tap into those answers takes time and disciplined, daily tuning in.
