I love the internet! I love the way it connects people to causes they believe and creates communities which can do more together than they can do alone.
“As of 2009, an estimated quarter of Earth’s population uses the services of the Internet”, according to Wikipedia. In 1960’s, when the Internet was conceived, the intent was to facilitate the exchange of information between networks of computers. Today information is still exchanged but what dominates the Internet landscape is the connecting of people. Take a look at the top 10 US websites , half are exclusively community building websites; and it could be argued that actually 9 out of 10 utilize enough group and chat dynamics within their websites that foster community as well.
