The idea that a network of computers might enable a specific new way of thinking about information, instead of just allowing people to access the data on each other's terminals, had been around for as long as the idea of the network itself: it's there in Vannevar Bush's memex, and Murray Leinster's logics. But the grandest expression of it was Project Xanadu, launched in 1960 by the American philosopher Ted Nelson, who imagined – and started to build – a vast repository for every piece of writing in existence, with everything connected to everything else according to a principle he called "transclusion". It was also, presciently, intended as a method for handling many of the problems that would come to plague the media in the age of the internet, automatically channelling small royalties back to the authors of anything that was linked. Xanadu was a mind-spinning vision – and at least according to an unflattering portrayal by Wired magazine in 1995, over which Nelson threatened to sue, led those attempting to create it into a rabbit-hole of confusion, backbiting and "heart-slashing despair". Nelson continues to develop Xanadu today, arguing that it is a vastly superior alternative to the web. "WE FIGHT ON," the Xanadu website declares, sounding rather beleaguered, not least since the declaration is made on a website.
Intercultural dialogue and enrichment are of course highly desirable. Indeed, dialogue between cultures is especially needed today because of the impact of new communications technology on the lives of individuals and peoples.23 But this has to be a two-way street. Cultures have much to learn from one another, and merely imposing the world view, values, and even language of one culture upon another is not dialogue but cultural imperialism.
And she, Miss L., does find your text as good as I do, but I got 0 points for the homework :/.
So a new advantage of internet is that you can find such as good texts in the internet for homeworks as your's is, but an important disadvantage is that teachers are as modern and technological educated as I am, so the risk of being too lazy is too high.
Your Viktor P.
So i see one more disadvantage of the internet, because we take all information for right without thinking about it or writing things ourself.
That said, the advantages of the Internet far outweigh the disadvantages, and millions of people each day benefit from using the Internet for work and for pleasure.
Disadvantages of the Internet:-
There are certain cons and dangers relating to the use of Internet that can be summarized as:
If you use the Internet, your personal information such as your name, address, etc.
We also discourage the use of our comments section as a space for promoting any personal or commercial websites and hence do not allow linking in our comments section.
For example, in the first paragraph:
[The] Internet has been perhaps the most outstanding innovation in the field of communication in the history of mankind.
However, the Internet also has its positive impacts, such as access to different online learning environments and peer-to-peer support from other students worldwide.
The Internet definitely has its own set of advantages and disadvantages.
There are also sites like Wikipedia, Coursera, Babbel, Archive, and Teachertube, among others, that have dedicated themselves to impart knowledge to people of all age groups.
With the advent of Internet, our earth has virtually reduced in size and has attained the form of a global village.
The Internet can be explained as a network of computers, designed to receive and send data in the form of e-mails, blogs, webcasts, etc.
thank you very much Jayashree Pakhare for this important article.
But we forget that the main desadvantage of the internet is Plagiarism.
So good luck!
Many difficult Internet-related questions call for international consensus: for example, how to guarantee the privacy of law-abiding individuals and groups without keeping law enforcement and security officials from exercising surveillance over criminals and terrorists; how to protect copyright and intellectual property rights without limiting access to material in the public domainand how to define the public domain' itself; how to establish and maintain broad-based Internet repositories of information freely available to all Internet users in a variety of languages; how to protect women's rights in regard to Internet access and other aspects of the new information technology. In particular, the question of how to close the digital divide between the information rich and the information poor requires urgent attention in its technical, educational, and cultural aspects.
Regulation of the Internet is desirable, and in principle industryself-regulation is best. The solution to problems arising from unregulated commercialization and privatization does not lie in state control of media but in more regulation according to criteria of public service and in greater public accountability.35 Industry codes of ethics can play a useful role, provided they are seriously intended, involve representatives of the public in their formulation and enforcement, and, along with giving encouragement to responsible communicators, carry appropriate penalties for violations, including public censure.36 Circumstances sometimes may require state intervention: for example, by setting up media advisory boards representing the range of opinion in the community.37
It is absurd – though also unavoidable here – to compact the whole of what happened from then onwards into a few sentences: the dotcom boom, the historically unprecedented dotcom bust, the growing "digital divide", and then the hugely significant flourishing, over the last seven years, of what became known as Web 2.0. It is only this latter period that has revealed the true capacity of the web for "generativity", for the publishing of blogs by anyone who could type, for podcasting and video-sharing, for the undermining of totalitarian regimes, for the use of sites such as Twitter and Facebook to create (and ruin) friendships, spread fashions and rumours, or organise political resistance. But you almost certainly know all this: it's part of what these days, in many parts of the world, we call "just being alive".
