In the ancient time :-), we used to know that books are the window of knowledge. But now, I would like to say that Internet is the window of knowledge. Do you think Internet is only the window of knowledge? Please let me know your opinion.

It can be a great source of knowledge but it is definitely not the only one and definitely not the best. You have to be careful with information from the net. You don't always know who published the material and if it is valid. I trust a lot of what I find but am always skeptic and if I don't know the site I will usually try to find another source of info. It's definitely the easiest and fastest way to find info it's just not 100% accurate and trustworthy.

Internet is one of the most important windows of knowledge and more at handy, but not the only one. Visiting websides is not enough, there are things we need to find out about from books, booklets, newpapers.

Yes it is... providing that you are willing to learn. Most people don't want to learn and only use the internet to play. If you don't like reading books... you won't be reading what's on the internet either. But the knowledge is there for everyone. The kids in Australia have been using the internet every night for the past ten years in order to do their school work.

Oh yes the internet is the best learning tool ever, I actually get very anygry with the people who say the interenet does damage to children and that reading books is ok, it is reading in a different way, I know I have learnt so much and I haven't even tried to study anything, it must be wonderful for the young kids of today.
