In the past, people used to switch on their computers to look for information; mainly specialized websites or wikipedia. Now, we are facing a new situation; the Internet's consumer profile is different. People still look up their emails, but they have other means of personal information exchange: Facebook, Twiter, Tuenti..., as well as knowledge and information sharing sites such as Delicious, Blogger or Wordpress. In other words, what we call web 2.0 consists of an active participation of internauts in an infinite number of live and endless conversations, rather than simply seeking for information.
In average terms. How much time do you think people waste aswering stupid massages without a profit? Not to mention the amount of time we lose while our computers or laptops are switched on and off and they eventually start being operative. What about smuggling, illegal actions such as minors abuse on the web, credit card theft, etc? Well..., that's the bad thing about computers, I think.
But what would I do without looking up at my emails on daily basis? Probably read a fairy tale to my son.
