How the Internet Changed my World

I started using the internet since 1997. You can say that I am what I am today basically because of the internet.

How did it changed me? Let me count the ways:

  1. I get to stay connected to my family, friends and contacts around the world. There are no timezones on the net, with just a click you get to talk to anyone anywhere they maybe.
  2. I am able available to guide my students 24/7 eventhough we only get to see each other once a week.
  3. I get to be always informed specially now we have RSS, about the latest in technology, local and foreign news and showbiz happenings.
  4. I get to monitor my favorite realty shows and even know who won survivor before it gets shown in TV. I also get to read episode guides on the shows that I missed.
  5. I get to learn new things though e-books, audiobooks(now there are podcasts) and informative websites.
  6. I get teach my three-year old son the English language, colors and sounds through educational websites and games like
  7. I get be a better teacher to my students, since I teach computer subjects I make sure that what I teach is always updated to what is happening in the IT world.
  8. I get to to have a chance to work from home and spend more time with my family.
  9. I get to teach other persons about technology and how it can enrich their lives.
  10. I get to launch my chocolate business and be an entreprenuer as I always dreamed o.f

How I'd like to see the web change the world

  1. I like the web make anybody and everybody realize their full potential(through online education and ecommerce).
  2. I would like to see our world be united as the internet expands all of us become its global citizens and work as one to better the world
  3. I would like to see the web be portable, where in you can access the internet in any device and in any location.

As an IT professional I believe that we still have not yet harnessed the full potential of the internet and I'm looking forward to more development of the web.

The youth on my mind

We are living in a world sorrounded by every electronic gadgets imaginable, cellphones, PDAs, computers, mp3 players, plasma TV and even cameras have their own memory. This blog site I dedicate to the youth of today, they are what I call the "Digitized Youth", children and teenagers that live and breathe using electronic gadgets. Even my three-year-old son knows his ways around a cellphone and even attempts to text!

This site is where I get to share my knowledge in anything and everthing digital and many more. There will be times that I will invite some of these young tech-savvy people and let them express their views on anything concerning them and the technology around them on this blog.

Looking forward to a productive and educational journey with you.
