The Internet & Web - Critical Thinking

Take a moment to carefully consider some of the issues below:

  1. Has the Internet changed the way that you communicate with your friends and family, work on school assignments, research and compare products? If so, how? Cite specific examples. How do you think it will impact these activities in the future?
  2. To see an overview of the evolution of the Internet between 2002 and 2012, view "The Internet a Decade Later," an infographic by http://www.bestedsites.com. What changes do you consider most important, most surprising, and most influential? Choose one topic that interests you. Make a prediction about the state of the topic ten years from now.
