I have never been too fond of writing so have not done very much on the computer next to emails.  Even though I am not writing very often I try to read a lot to further my knowledge on random subjects, and I do this through large online networks of people where several opinions and where lots of knowledge can be shared.  Just as this article talks about the benefit of these large networks versus other non-internet options.  I completely agree that the mass majority of people’s outlooks have changed mostly impart this is due to the large influx of knowledge and ideas online.
