Quote of the day:
I want the entire smartphone, the entire Internet, on my wrist. -Steve Wozniak
The internet is a weird place. Its dark and gloomy, filled with pop up ads, but yet with occasions of brilliance and magic. Dark tunnels with unending depth, dark alleys with no light, spiders with cobwebs, and dangerous life changing actions. If the internet was a physical place it'd be one hell of a place to visit. Comedian, Dave Chapelle's sketch 'If The Inernet Was a Real Place', which by the way he did years ago, perhaps still captures modern day sentiments about the internet.
In the same breath, the internet is a beautiful place, with rainbow skies, fluffy marshmallow like clouds, and golden reflections bouncing across concrete streets lined with flowers and enchanting trees, so beautiful to gaze upon.
But what if the internet was a real person. Would it be male or female? Old or young? This would certainly be a very intelligent individual, smart in every sense of the way. Much more like Benedict Cumberbatch in Sherlock Holmes, or say Mike Ross from hit TV series 'Suits'.
The internet has its good sides -access to information and resources, entertainment, E-commerce, communication and a host of other advantages which basically makes life easier in every imaginable way. As with all things, something good can be used in a not so good way. And the bad aspect of the internet -Spam mails and malware, bullying, hacking, age-inappropriate content, misinformation, and addiction just to name a few.
What are your thoughts on this modern stage of the internet. Do you feel the internet needs more policing or less? Is it a good or bad place? If the internet was a real person, how would you describe him/her?
Peace. Love. Light*
