Something that I thought was interesting during class was the fact that in a way the internet is taking over our lifes. For example anybody can go to wikipedia and change anything to what they want to and there is a certain time-frame before editors change the info to what is most likely more right than the stranger who changed it in the first place. The thing is people base their lifes on what is posted on the internet as far as knowledge gathering from sites like wikipedia which is not always correct. Even the people who work for wikipedia are not exactly knowledgeable of half the things they correct, because they can't study and know everything about everything. The reason the internet is taking over our lifes is because when we want to know something we don't gain the knowledge intelectually; we just quickly look on sites like wikipedia and don't pursue further knowlege by doing things such as reading books and going to libraries.
