Re: Effects of Computers and the Internet on Society

I think, like with any new invention that there are good and bad impacts on society, for instance take the invention of the railway. That was great for not only allowing people to travel much more quickly than before, but also to transport goods or food faster. But then, railway lines were also an important factor in many wars, helping 'the bad guys'.

In much the same way as railways, the internet has been brilliant at connecting people, it has sped up communication and continues to grow and expand, however, not all the information you can research on the internet is valid or has been checked by people who actually know what they are talking about. It's great that anyone can post or write anything, but if anyone can upload anything, that information we read isn't always true.

Also, emails etc. were supposed to make our lives easier, as everything was instant, but now we all have to deal with so much more work than ever before because the communication has sped up. While working in an office, you could easily have over 200 emails per day to deal with, before the internet I'm sure no one person had to open, read and reply to 200 letters.

In any case, the internet is still relatively new, so the chances are it will change radically over the next few years and perhaps will be regulated differently, so the content we see might be restricted, or we might have to (like television), pay in gold coins to see the most popular sites.

The internet from my perspective (and reading this thread it seems my view is shared) has considerable advantages and disadvantages.

The advantages for me are mainly - potential to run my own business, Access to incredible amounts of information, contact with people I could never have previously communicated with, shared opinions.

Disadvantages - well there are really 2 for me - 1. less physical contact and 2. less manual physical work leading to an unhealthy sedentary lifestyle
