A piece of recent technology that I use daily is the Internet. The Internet has changed my life, and that of many others. We can do anything there, from research to connecting with people. If it was not for the Internet, students could not quickly access information and have to refer to books like the old days. It also provides people with social networking opportunities such as facebook, skype, and twitter. In the recent Egyptian uprising, many of the phone lines had been disconnected so the only way for people to communicate with the outside world was through Twitter and YouTube. This helped citizens globally to realize what was going on in this country and provide a means of help.
Another important aspect of the Internet is that you can learn to do anything or find anything by just typing it into Google. It is as easy as that. Lets say for example I need to find a quick remedy to a jellyfish sting. All I have to do is search the topic on the Internet, and I cure will pop right up, without having to go to a doctor. The Internet continues to technologically enhance our global population by providing fast information with the click of a button. It truly has become an important part of human life and has changed technology forever.
The world of the Internet has exploded since I’ve been online. In the future, it will become even faster and easier to access. It’s evolutionary, and there isn’t a question as to whether the Internet will continue to “be there” in the future. It’s going to be a huge part of our daily lives in years and decades to come.
