Well...there are two kinds of people that visit the internet...
The person who visits the sites that corporate America is trying to sell...that holds no value but is cool and hip because a commercial or celebrity
told you so.
Then there is the person who will be talking about something at work...and hears something they know nothing about but intrests them at the same
time...they google it, wikipedia it...whatever your poison.
Even if the information is somewhat inaccurate, you are now more informed about a subject that interests you, and if it REALLY interests you, you can
find a book about it, article, or video discussing the subject.
Not ONLY can you find a book, but you can read reviews about the book to see how other people felt about the book and how it was written.
THEN NOT ONLY THAT you find a title that you seems to be a good choice, you can find it cheaper on another site.
In the right hands the internet can be the most powerful tool for information in the history of our species.
However...(and maybe this belongs in a ATS thread) maybe the internet itself is one big hoax. Being controlled by people who manipulate people to
THINK that the internet is an outlit for the the freedom of ideas, and opinions, and information.
But I dunno...
These forums to me seem like the pictures you see of old Rome where the noble men come together and share and exchange their view-points.
Except on a global scale.
