The Internet is changing the way we live. All aspects of our lives are being influenced by this new communication medium. Imagine an invention so pervasive that it influences our economy, our communication, our social life, our education and research, our workplace, our entertainment and so many other aspects of our lives. The Information Age truly is a Renaissance for human society.
It is inconceivable that the original scientists behind ARPANET could have imagined the enormous impact their invention would have on the world. Never before have we been able to communicate so quickly across multiple time zones at the speed of the Internet. The convenience of being able to talk to people around the world and share information without the costs of long distance will surely have a huge impact on the global society.
Imagine how our image of the world has changed. Before, many people viewed the world as one separated by walls. It was a world of East vs.West, North vs. South, but this view is changing. Now we are a global society completely connected, and integrated by millions of kilometers of wires, satellite communications, and radio waves. Our economies are evolving into ones which are successful based on the level of inter-connectedness we possess. While this still has problems associated with it, its potential is enormous.
If we are to survive and find success in this new information-based economy, we must be aware of how to use the Internet.
