I was just thinking last night about all of the things I can do now via the internet that was either impossible before or time consumming and difficult at the least. I can send and recieve mail instantaneously, I can get and pay bills online. I can access books I never even knew existed. Get instant news from around the world. Watch and talk to friends around the world via live video and audio. Have discussions with fascinating people I otherwise would have never met. The list just goes on and on. Since I was almost 40 years old before the "world wide web", it has been a major change in my life. I don't think my girls remember how things were before the internet. My oldest had taught herself various programming languages and I discovered at age 12 she was making websites for small businesses (for free) she's a very talented graphic artist, btw, AND she had a popular website that gave advice to troubled teens. I was worried when I found it, but her advice was sound, safe and accurate, to my relief. She sounded like she could have been a trained therapist/counselor. I realize we have a lot of young people on here that were raised with the internet. But even for them the internet has evolved. I was wondering how other people feel the internet has changed their lives.
