    Properly used, Internet = Freedom.

    This explain why totalitarian governments do not like it. Let us keep Internet Free, it is our responsibility.

    For me Internet is a big library, market, telephone exchange, social network, place to learn, work and earn.

    To me the internet means freedom and savings.
    I don't have to get into a car to go to work or to get information I need.
    I don't pollute the air with fumes from the car, so I am helping the environment.
    I don't have to get dressed up to work online, so I am saving resources and time.
    I can meet new friends from anywhere in the world online, so I am "global".
    There are days when I am not online, and that is fine.
    "Online" and "The Internet" are just another place to be.
    Before the internet, life moved a bit slower. We had dials on our phones, cords on our remotes, and very large appliances such as microwave ovens the size of regular ovens.
    Now, everything is smaller - including time spent IRL with each other.
    There are days when my husband and I are in our office all day long with our backs to each other working on our computers.
    That is the internet to me.

    If it had a cord, it wasn't considered a remote controller : )

    and very large appliances such as microwave ovens the size of regular ovens.
    The Radar-Range! Those things were freaking AWESOME. Imagine having such a thing in your house. Just, too cool. Amaze your friends! Cook food with microwaves!

    It looked like something only a professional chef would have.

    To me Internet means Googling i.e. finding solutions to almost every possible problem. There's nothing as good as internet to aid you in any problems.

    Don't know what you're talking about there but I lol'd hard.

Yeah, they DON'T have their own website. But guess what you get typing that into the googles?
    Also had a similar issue with Geisha/Geisha girls. You CAN find the website, eventually. Arg.
    I guess so regarding the wrong TLD and so on. Haha your story about the jeanselling headers for your company is kind of typical eh...Searching Bad Boys and Bad Girls into Google Actually I have a similar story, when I was in school I sat next to this lad in IT and he wanted to check his Hotmail E-Mail account and instead of typing the URL he googled it, instead of typing Hotmail he typed Hotmale by mistake! Because the computers were being monitored by the technicians, two senior staff came in to have a word with him. It was funny! I guess it really depends on the context of what you're searching for and making the search term more specific.

    Well they do...Every bloody day...But I in a world where the law is obeyed then it's different...Of course we don't have that but let's not go there .

    I think your description, LibrianFriend, is great. Especially about it being a big library. It really is a huge library of information and knowledge. Some information is garbage and some is really great material, but it's a huge library of resources and learning materials, and most of it is for free too.

    Absolutely! I can't agree more! The fact that we don't have to go all the way to the local library anymore to get information on something that may or may not be there (and most likely a few years out of date too) is amazing. We can find out what we want in under 10 minutes now with a quick Google search (with the right search terms, and if you're a quick reader too haha).

    The Internet has really made our lives more efficient. Wouldn't you agree? And I think we can all agree that, for the most part, the Internet is an amazing invention that has improved the majority of peoples lives around the World. It has certainly worked wonders on my life!

    The internet is the POSITIVE RESULT of "collaboration" around the globe. =)
    The internet is the CHILD of all of us in every town, city, state, country - proof that collaboration ROCKS!
    Let the internet be the inspiration to all the leaders of the world of how things IRL CAN BE - instead of wars there can be understanding and collaboration.
    It may be a Utopian view on things, but why not?
    There are so few things to dream about anymore, why NOT Utopia on earth?
    The internet shows us how.
    Long live people and the internet happily co-existing together!

    I think calling the Internet a Utopia is going a bit far... there's a lot of bad stuff on the web and a serious criminal element too.

    Nah, a Utopia isn't perfect.

    The way I am interpreting "Utopia" is a place where people work together toward a common goal.

    There will always be a "bad" element wherever we are, no matter what we do.

    Seems like a contradiction of terms in my eyes, the generally accepted definition of a Utopia is a perfect or ideal state.

    I would think having a non-perfect Utopia would be scary, as it would mean striving for average rather than the best

    No contradiction here... the scammers all work together to relieve you of your money : )

    In any case, the U of Utopia is "eu" which means "good". So, can't be bad : )
