3 Ways the Internet is Changing Things, for Better AND for Worse

b2ap3_thumbnail_internet_pros_cons_400.jpgWe’ve all become so adapted to the conveniences of the Internet that it’s difficult to remember what society was like before it. This becomes especially obvious when watching old movies. How odd is it to see characters do pre-Internet activities like go to the library to research information and use a phone book?
