i like the internet:)

Stan Nelson

The Internet is our first truly worldwide, international, real-time, 24/7/365 medium. It makes available easy access to and sharing of limitless information, ideas and opinions. It is changing the face of nationalism, politics, and interpersonal relationships. It is the greatest development we've had since machinery and manufacturing. Use it to the fullest!

Addiction to the Internet may turn out to be the perfect anti-dote to degenerative diseases of the brain like Parkinsons and Alzheimers.

the internet has not yet picked in most developing countries and though the worldwide web seem encompassing, it is still unavailable to a substantial number of people. but as the trend shows, everybody from anywhere will have an access to everybody from anywhere as the internet becomes a domineering part of our daily existence. ergo, it is not addicting but rather an indispensible necessity that may well be considered as a new mental disease.
