the Internet has changed the world forever, and for millions of people life wouldn't be the same without it.
I remember my father presenting me with a complete set of Encyclopaedia Britannica and telling me that the books contained 'Everything you'll ever want to know'. I wonder what he would think if he was alive to see just what goes on out there on the web today.
How many have actually used it, or been aware of the internet for 40 years?
For me, I first became aware of it some time in the early '90s when web addresses were first put onto TV ads or on programme credits, and I remember asking a friend what they were, 'that'll never be of interest to most people' I distinctly remember answering!
I think by '97 time I'd gone online for the first time, but I wasn't quite sure what I was supposed to do, what I was looking for or why. But slowly it grew on me as the benefits of various media that aren't readily available suddenly were.
