It’s incredible that something that was created as an act of war has become essential to so many people. I find fascinating the desire of accomplishing more and developing better software, what’s more impressive is that said desire still exists. What I don’t understand is the reason why. I feel as though we’ve had everything we need for a while now but things keep getting improved. I find myself wondering what drives a human being to continuing developing something that, in my opinion, is developed enough. What’s the purpose of it all? Is it to make money or to be remembered?
60% of the world’s population doesn’t have access to the internet, yet the remaining 40% states not being able to live without it. I remember not being allowed to be on the computer before all my homework was done and now most homework requires kids to use the internet.
I think it’s interesting how people transformed this platform into a community to express their opinions and dissatisfaction regarding different issues of society including war and nuclear weapons, and even now the internet is a place where we can express our opinions and shed light on real social issues such as body-image and discrimination. I just find it sad that we depend on something that, in reality, isn’t essential. Sure it makes our lives easier but as it’s growing it starts making us unable to go outside and cohabitate with other people.
