The web in my perspective:
The web never really called to me until recently, to be honest I do however use social media a lot. I think I give to much time to the things that don’t matter much for example I go on Instagram and like a pic of this famous person instead of going and look for important things like news or things that are happening around the world. Does it makes me a bad person? No, i don’t think so, we all have our way of enjoying the “WEB” and I was new to this whole red at the time. Now i use it for work, Photoshop and social media still, but with the additions of the news. I rather like being informed of what’s happening not only from where i am but all around the world.
“When you were growing up, your mom and dad told you to look both ways before crossing the street or not to get into a car with a stranger. It’s the same with the Internet. We have a big responsibility and a huge role in bringing all the stakeholders to the table – users, parents, educators, law enforcement, government organisations.”(Quote by Chris DeWolfe) I see the internet as a tool, that has in a way become everything in between. Everything you want to know you can just look it up in a page and thousands examples of it will be at your disposal, there’s no limit of what you will see and find. Therefore sometimes it worries me because there is people that do use it as a bad source which some would see it as a balance since the world is indeed just the good, the bad, and the neutral space of things the internet or the web however you like to call is just the same, even if it worries me to the point to ask myself if technology is evolving is it for the best or for the worse?. But i guess in a way that this is one of those questions that can be answer many times by different types of perspectives and different types of opinion. Technology has being evolving for quite some time now, everyday there is something new to see, to explore and to understand. I am not saying is bad but we have to be clear that the world isn’t in much of a good shape by now. It has changed and it keeps changing in a technology kind of sense, but does it really helps the world?. Is so dangerous to stop and think that life change so fast and that the internet has so much to do with it, is terrifying knowing that kids today won’t know what the world was before the internet. It has a big control over us and is scary to know that we have become addicted to it. You ask yourself How can we fix it? and to be completely honest i don’t Know. Now we know that the internet is not bad but is it good?…
