Funny, I can remember when the internet first came into the picture. I worked for America Online at one point in my illustrious career.
It wasn't bad enough I was online at work, I would go home and get online right away. That was back when I played Cosrin, the online role playing game that was text based. Most of the calls I got for customer support were asking how to block the internet from their kids or how to allocate X amount of time for the kids. They also wanted to know how to block unsafe sites, monitor chat rooms, etc.
Now kids are online more than adults it seems and it is all geared towards them. For the most part. I'm pretty sure some two year olds have their own websites, if not soon-to-be born kiddos.
It has changed the lives of many. It is the communication choice of the times. I even admit to keeping in touch better with my family and friends and their goings on through Facebook. So it has changed my life in lots of different ways.
Now I pose the big question. Could you survive without the internet?
Sometimes I think I could. I'd like to get back to the lifestyle before internet. But a lot of that has to do with my geographical location. If I had more available to me, I'd be out and about more often. I'd unplug more often. But then I would miss it and the 'connection' I have.
So how has the internet changed your life? Could you survive without it?
