Internet is Great
Yes it is with the inter browser explorer google chrome firefox to explore tthe web and uses for researching and collecting data and I think it is mandatory that we keep it and keep it up to date. Because I think it has become a value to all of us.

Internet of People
I have often wondered what the longterm costs might be for easily accessible information that's always available. Modern day society is easily connected, but doesn't seem to engage in a lot of deep thought or analysis. This is troubling for our collective future. Parents are on the front lines to fix such things, but may not even be aware of the dangers of unlimited access. Hopefully, we will soon start to see a shift towards better online habits at ealier ages.

The internet is alive
I believe that it has lived up to its potential so far.  It is almost like it is a living thing that continues to develop and learn new skills as it ages.

Mindset
 It is neither good nor bad; it is how we use it that matters....


This is pretty obvious not just with the internet but with any activity that needs moderation. It is just the human ability to set that limitation and maintain the level of control. It is all the mindset that matters here.

Online Vs Offline
Balance time online: Model a healthy balance between your online and offline activities.

 

This is a perfect fact that everyone must follow. But is that what is happening...i doubt 100%. As socail networking is evolving at unlimited extent, people are getting obsessed to have their presense felt by all means. So in that process that balance is certainly getting lost too often.

Re: The internet is alive
@af just like the AI in Terminator? I think it's grown up to become really useful and hurtful too. So many harmful effects come from humans, of course.

Re: Online Vs Offline
@ms.akkineni, I fully agree.  We are out of balance on this.  The need to stay "connected" has created an obsession to be "aware" of everything - which limits what we can know and digest.

There is a great book, "Shallows" by Nicolas Carr that validates our shortened attention span.  The great news, according to his research, is that we can reverse the habit patterns and construct deeper thinking by exercising our thinking.

So to Joseph's great point, we are over-indulging on the Internet and need to develop a better balance.  Just because we can do everything doesn't mean we should.

Re: The internet is alive
I completely agree! I feel like it's lived up to what it can do as for right now. Hopefully when the future develops more and more technology advancements the Internet will be able to keep up.

The dangers of the internet
This definitely highlights all of the problems found in conjunction with the internet. There was actually a social experiment that has been floating around Facebook, used to highlight the problem most of us suffer with, having our phones in our hands at all times. Phones have put the internet in our pockets. I absolutely love being able to find the answer to my questions with just simple searches. But I hold two Master's Degrees, and even taught college classes, where a few weeks worth of projects focused on locating reliable information and just how to find it. Critical thinking has been a part of my life for decades now, so much so that I have my toddlers working on critical thought. But I know just how rare this is - I taught college classes afterall. And in a society where delayed-gratification is a thing of the past, and critical thought is a nuisance, the internet can be an extrememly dangerous thing. I shudder to think of just how easily misinformation is spread on this avenue of information I see as more benefit than hindrance. "A lie gets half way around the world before the truth can get its pants on." -Winston Churchill. And he said that before the internet existed! 

The biggest problem, I see, that I doubt many parents realize - is that if their teenagers are exchanging naked pictures with one another, and someone decides to report that. They can be slapped with child pornography and sexual assault charges that lead to them being put on the Sex Offenders list. For teenagers, this would be life-altering. Even if the pictures were exchanged willing, this can still happen. For some reason, it needs to be said that our actions on the internet can affect us in real life - to a very serious extent.
