The World Wide Web is a connected community that has been growing exponentially since its first formation. Being connected is now not an option – it is a requirement. From paying your bills, reading the over night sports results from around the world and from being in your Grade 3 class, people=s lives have changed because of the development of connectedness. Google Maps allow us to find a cafe nearby, Jorudan, helps us plan our travel around Japan there are many Apps that have made our lives more convenient.
However, has the convenience of connectivity made us just a little lazy? Has it made our minds and brains just a little bit more mushy? Or has it indeed opened a different route of acquiring information from our minds. I like to think that this connectivity convenience has indeed inspired us to reflect and think more on how we acquire information. As a race, we are not making ourselves more lazy. We are developing tools just like they did thousands of years ago, but instead of shovels and wheels, we are creating connections.
