The miracle of the internet

    The internet has brought all of us closer.  Imagine I could communicate with all of you, given the difference in culture and geographical location.  And it is in real-time! 

    Unfortunately we can't communicate with the other communities which use different languages.  However, people like me from a different culture and from a remote location have to be a bit mindful that most readers are from the Western world, particularly the US.  Even in spelling, I try to use American English.  Looking from the "outside" I sometimes feel that many tend to forget that they are communicating with the whole world.

    Isn't the internet the real miracle?

      Ah, Beelzedad said it before I did!

      It's science;  something invented by man's knowledge and imagination.

      It's really a mind-bending miracle in my life.  Yep, I'm a child of the 70's and remember the days without such technology.  I used the punched cards in college, and now, this.
      It's incredible.

    Well, Internet is a miracle,we can ask questions and find answers right away and learn, and teach and earn money. A litle more of that and I will start to write poems, so I better shut up.

    Too true!

    Though I tend to write and spell according to the English (British) tradition...you know, because they developed the language.

    I'd probably rate the internet as one of the most important inventions of modern history.
