When I read the word - Internet - All that comes to mind is huge machines with weird maroon coloured rectangular buttons in large warehouses with big, long, black wires going all over the place. Men with thick-rimmed glasses wearing all sorts of weird clothing that we'd cringe at if we seen them. Working away 24 hours a day pressing these big buttons on these big machines.
What does the Internet mean to you though? In your eyes, what do you see the Internet as, and more importantly, what effect has the Internet had on your life and career?
What does the Internet mean to me? It means a whole gigantic super-highway of information. The Internet is a fountain of knowledge...Mostly free knowledge. The Internet super-highway is the fastest highway in the world, faster than the latest Ferrari sports car. It's something amazing. It's something to be in awe of. If it wasn't for the Internet, I would have been in a performing arts college right now studying drama to become an actor, or perhaps studying and training to be a musician. But I'm training to become a professional Web Designer / Developer. And I think it's a whole lot easier than what it would have taken me to be successful in the performing arts sector / industry.
The Internet has had a massive impact on mine and my families life. The Internet has changed the world in ways you can't possibly imagine and the Internet means a whole lot more to me than just a network of computers. It means freedom, a fountain of free knowledge, a bright and prosperous career, connecting with people from all over the world to create long-lasting friendships and even relationships.
Share your passion and love for the Internet with us all Let us be amazed at how amazing the Internet is and take a minute to reflect on how it has affected our lives and the World we live in. I hope you feel the same way about the Internet as I do and if you don't then tell us how you feel about the Internet and what it means to you.
