How has the internet changed your life?

The Internet. How would you cope without it today? Do you think that you can go back to the old ways of doing things? Reading the newspaper everyday. Actually talking to people face-to-face. Seeing actual photos developed at a one hour photo store. Calling people on the phone, god forbid.

I must admit though that the Internet has made our life a lot easier.

The Internet seemed to have been invented with the introvert in mind. In fact, Al Gore who has been mentioned in this blog a few times even said that "I invented the Internet." I'm not sure about that but if he is an introvert then he developed something that has helped him in his life.

The Internet is definitely an introvert's dream come true. Where else can you order a pizza without talking to someone? Where else can you get groceries delivered to your door without talking to anyone? The most important thing about the Internet for introverts is that you can use Facebook, Twitter, Instagram etc ad nauseam and everyone will think you are social. Thank you Mr. Zuckerberg.

It is very easy to sit behind your computer screen or stare at your phone all day and admittedly we have probably all done that but you have to get out and about and meet people. You need to meet people of different backgrounds and cultures because that is how you are going to grow as a person.

Don't be like the guy below and stay seated the whole day. Get out of your chair. Go and say hi to people. At the very least you might get some exercise which is good I'm told. You might even find some Pokemons here and there.
