Today is a http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/technology/5368190.stm which is an annual celebration of the World Wide Web and how it is changing our lives.
They suggest bloggers write a post today about how the WWW has changed their life. I am guessing any of you who follow me regularly can see the evidence of how it’s changed my life.
So here are a few ways the web has changed my life, perhaps not for the better…
– I think the WWW has help contributed to a neck problem that I seem to have due to hours upon hours of sitting at a computer.
– The WWW probably cost me contract work in the past as it enabled programming to be sent offshore for a cheaper price.
– The WWW probably kept me indoors alone too much when I could have been out doing more sociable things with people.
Well I am going to end on a positive. The web has enabled me to start my own business and travel more. As a consequence of this I have managed to meet a very broad spectrum of people and try lots of new things.
