Are You Internet Dependant?

Are you internet dependant? What would you do without the internet? How would you improve the net?

I'd kill someone if the internet disappeared. Improving the internet? Yeh right, in a million years.

I have 2 teenage daughters, studying for A Levels and GCSEs, and their school EXPECTS them to have access to the net in order to do homework research.

That's dependency!

Small businesses are being offered cash incentives to use online filing for their Employer's Annual Return for 2005-06 onwards, and I understand that from 2010 ALL companies will have to comply, so add that to everything else that is gradually requiring internet access and I guess the decision is being made for many of us.

Anthony McClaran, the chief executive of Ucas, said: "Ucas is committed to transforming the application process to a fully 100% online system."

It won't just be home work that will need a computer but applying to Uni as well.

Yeah - I am definently internet dependant.
I can't see the internet EVER disappearing as it is global now and used by BILLIONS of people.
Also businesses around the world RELY on it like for example the London Stock Exchange.

What is life without the internet? I've forgotten.

I don't think we need two of them, so I'll close this now.
