How Do You See the Internet?
I was once watching a game show and one question struck me. In fact, it was around four to five years ago but I still remember it good. It says about internet crashing in the recent future, around 2010. And why is that? The game show did not explained well and did not elaborated on the question even the contestant made a wrong answer for she answered 'oil/petroleum' and not the Internet! But well, who could guess?
Looking at the online world, I see its usefulness. I also see the threats and danger it gives to those who are too reckless in doing it. Personally, the Internet is something very useful to me. If I need any information, the Internet is the very first thing I rant to. I have my online library subscription (questia) for a more detailed information on something or anything. It is more reliable that personal unverified websites.
On the other side, I see the wrong side of the internet,. It is not the first time that videos online inspired crime and caused a waste of life. Furthermore, it has become a center of pornography and the likes. There are people making viruses, worms, bugs, etcetera. If one is not careful enough, the price can be expensive as well.
But for me, I do love the Internet. It is something very useful to me. I found apartment through it, made money with it, find work in it, and many more useful things.
How about you? Is the Internet good for you? What do you get from it? I would love to hear your opinion.
