The Effects of the Internet

As Web 2.0 is now in full swing, I thought I’d dedicate a show to seeing how everyone is feeling about the Internet these days. A lot of good has come from it, but there are some obvious downfalls that we might want to get in check. I, for one, know that if I have to deal with just one more email account, my head might explode. And all the Facebook and MySpace and social network action just eats up so much of my time. It’s too much! What a Catch 22.

I mean, the Internet is a great tool on many levels. You can’t beat it for research purposes. You can find so many interesting things out there in our culture, like new music, movies, and other forms of entertainment. And you can’t beat it for news. But then, it just socially kills a lot of our relationships. How many times have YOU gotten in a fight because a tone or message was digitally miscommunicated? You get what I’m getting at here.

So, what do you think? Who’s in control here, the Internet, or us?
