Since you are reading this article on the Internet, you can pride yourself that you can use the world’s largest information technology. But this technology is so new and complex that nobody can claim to fully understand it.
Learning how to search the Internet is such a new skill, the tools have become so sophisticated, and the data is so vast that you have to work at it full-time to master it. I have worked at it every day for more than 20 years in my career of writing about diabetes and I am still learning new tricks. It’s time for me to share some of the best ones.
In March 1994 I began to use the Internet to learn everything that I could about diabetes. That was one month and two days after a doctor told me than my A1C level was 14.4 and that I had type 2 diabetes.
You can, of course, read my chapter on how to search the Internet for diabetes information in these books. If you do, be sure to read it in the 2015 edition, because the Internet and searching it have changed so much over the years.
While only a few pages the book itself are on the Internet, I have posted a somewhat updated version on my website. I hope that you will search for it and read it at “Searching the Internet for Diabetes Information.”
