The Internet; a Friend or Foe??

Take a closer look at this picture and answer this questions below...
1. Do you see the human face or the internet?
2. Does the face resemble yours?I am guessing the answer to this should be a big NO........

The internet should not be blamed for anything especially "dumb". It contains a lot of information which is meant for us to either accept or reject it based on our intuition or other sources. To a few like the Nobel laureate Doris, it does limit our reading of books and all but guess what there are books online which are not meant for fancy but for reading.

Humans are not dumb we just have different intepretations of situations and information. The internet gives us this lengthy menu and a variety of options. The world is moving at a fast pace and in a digital way, the emergence of the internet and the PC has brought about amazing and mind blowing discoveries. It is not DUMB!!!!!

Can you cope today without a PC, a Smartphone, an I-Phone or a Blackberry?


  1. I agree with you that now days we are reliant on the devices you mentioned along with the internet. We become reliant on these tools because of the amount of information they give us and are a great resource. It certainly does not make us dumber.

  2. The internet has completely changed our lives, from how we communicate to how we conduct business. There is no way that the internet can make people dumb. People have used the internet to increase productivity through advanced techniques, rather than reading a book. Nowadays, its more efficient to pull up a wiki page than to sit down and look between several books to find your information.
