After my incident of losing my Internet modem for a few days it got me to wondering if we are now dependent on the Internet. It seems like there is so much that is done online these days. Yes we can do recreational things like go to social media websites to interact with others. We can also stream TV and Movies online. However, the Internet has taken over our lives in other ways as well. We can now do business online, we can run a business online, we can work online by doing what is call telecommuting. We can even go to school online and pay bills online. In other words it seems as if thanks to the Internet we don't have to leave our homes to interact with the world and all aspects of it. But what happens when we have no Internet connection. Not only do we lose that contact but we can feel like we have lost something that is essential to our livelihood. The irony though is a few decades back there was no Internet or there was an Internet but it wasn't allowed to take over so many aspects of our lives. Now it would seem to losing the Internet can cause us more issues then ever before. So, the question is are we dependent on the Internet? In my opinion I would have to say yes we are and it not just people who are dependent its society on a whole that is dependent on it..
