postheadericon The Marvels of the World Wide Web

When it comes to the internet, there are a myriad of benefits this miraculous modern marvel. As far as tech goes, the world wide web is the singular greatest tech advancement of all time, especially once you consider how much of it is consolidating our most important tech from history into one convenient package and connecting it to the entire world. The internet has truly revolutionized modern civilization, and every aspect thereof, and changed our lives for the better. Here are just a few ways this miracle tech has made life just a little, or a lot, sweeter for all of us.

First and foremost, there’s online shopping. No one likes shopping. Well women supposedly do, but I think people like to acquire things, and yes, there is a distinction. The act of going to a physical location, searching through a labyrinth for the goods you want, waiting in line, and then driving back home is tedious, and it’s a waste of time. The internet has provided a convenient alternative to this sloppy system in the form of online shopping. Just about anything you could want is available online, from Disney’s online store to the giant that is Amazon, online stores exist to cater to just about every need, just to maximize your convenience. It only takes a few clicks and a little typing to have your order sent right to your door, or to your P.O. box, within just a couple of days, all without talking to a cashier. Even if your package arrives and something is wrong, you can simply shoot the vendor an email to have it all quietly and quickly taken care of with no fuss.

Another brilliant way in which the internet has revolutionized our world is by introducing the sharing economy. Sure, it has its flaws, like Air BnB and the like, but other facets of this new way of doing business, like YouTube, Wikipedia, etc. are great additions to the fold of the internet, as well as popular culture at large. The very idea of user generated content is so mind bogglingly obvious in hindsight, and yet I have to wonder how anyone ever thought of it.
