So I got thinking this morning and I can’t really remember life without having the Internet. I mean I know it did exist, but its been such an integral part of my life being a computer engineer and all, that it’s hard to remember not having it. From the early days of college/university when people used to laugh at you using email to making webpages in hard core HTML to work in Netscape 3.0, ah those were the days.
Now I come in to work and if there is something that isn’t sorted, I immediately go to Google and ask my best friend and within minutes (99% of the time) I know the answer. I’m constantly checking email, whether it be from the office, via remote web access, via Citrix or even on my Windows Mobile PDA, it’s something almost any computer engineer can’t live without.
I’m sure there are others of you as well who are in the same boat, just admit it! What would life be if we had the plug pulled on something we’re so used to now – which was originally labelled “childs play” and people said it wouldn’t go anywhere (http://www.newsweek.com/id/106554)
