I can personally say I've learnt a lot from the Internet, interesting stuff and what not. It's also been a great pass time for me, endless hours of surfing through web pages, downloading stuff I require for free, uploading, chatting etc. It's been a good friend to me and will continue to be till I get old. I'm sure a lot of you can relate... Tell us how has the Internet affected you?

The internet is the greatest invention of all. Without the internet the world will not be the same anymore, now internet have linked everyone together, making the world smaller and smaller. Who wants long distance calls now, everyone uses skype or other forms of internet video calls. Companies sell things on the internet creating a invisible shopping center for shoppers from around the world to buy their stuff opening up new markets and oppotunities around the world. Knowledge is spread from one end of the globe to another in an instant, road and distances to count anymore making all the brightest work together to invent new things e.g firefox 3 which developers from around the world makes their contribution unrestricted by distances and borders. The most important thing about internet is that it breaks away the border of every country thus spreading culture throughout the world making us know each and everyone else better. It shows me that i am not alone in this world and that there are so many others with different and interesting ideas and way of living throughout the world.

Internet had always been one of the essential things for me to live. I just love this place where people share their lives with us and we do the same. Even people have changed the quote "Bread and Butter" to "Bread, Butter and Broadband". From the simplest to the weirdest thing, you can get everything here. It has affected my life in both the ways. One is that I learn a lot of values and information from the Internet. From meeting new people at Orkut, Learning new things at YouTube, chatting with Yahoo! Messenger with new people, using Wikipedia for my school projects, uploading and posting my compositions online and getting comments from other people about whether they liked it or not. The other side of the coin is that I just spend too much time on it due to which I am quite not able to give a lot of time to my family, especially my dog. Moreover it affects my studies in a negative way. I am quite addicted to this miracle and spend at least an hour daily using it. But still I cannot live without it and love it. Cheers! AJ Rox.
