How has the Internet changed your life?: (Gene in his all-too-natural habitat.)
The newspaper USA Today is turning 25, and is running a series of list -- 25 important events of the last 25 years in 25 different areas of life. Recently, they listed 25 ways in which the Internet has changed our lives. And it got me to thinking how my life has changed because of the web.
- I couldn't do my job without the Internet. Literally. I live in Michigan, but work for the Science Museum of Minnesota. Everything I do is via e-mail, FTP site, or shared server.
- Liza and I were talking just the other day about how the Internet has spoiled us, making it so easy to find photos and information that we now get annoyed if we can't find some obscure piece of information within the first five minutes.
- I keep in touch with family and friends all over the country, through e-mail and a personal photo blog. In fact, I maintained a long-distance relationship with a girlfriend in another country, thanks to e-mail.
- I spend wayyyy too much time reading blogs every night.
