It would take me hours to list down all the benefits that I received from using the internet but on the other side of it, it really worries me when all of us rely heavily on the internet 24/7. The information explosion which was made possible through the internet had provided us with instant insights, those ideas that are readily passed on to us. In some cases, this might help but the problem is we tend not to think because the internet had done all the analyzing, etc. What might happen, and I believe that this is prevalent today, is that we might lose the chance of thinking in a "traditional" way long before the internet was invented. In our way of communication, internet has proven to be the most dominant of all. Being "connected" and "wired" does not mean that we have established good relationship. Virtual communication had not filled the void.
