Internet is 21th centurys indispensable information source. We depend on internet for most of our business.

It provides us with an infinite information about everything. One can find as much information as he does not want to written on a subject. One of the things that makes internet indispensable for a person is that internet is easily accessible. It is enough for you to enter a word or phrase to reach so much information about it. This not only brings time saving for a person but also the process is so short and not tiring for the individual. He does not need to read hundreds of pages for an assignment as internet will provide him with the summary of the text whatever it is. Also, we all know there is not a restricted time for people to use internet. No matter which day, which time of the day it is, one can use internet as long as he has internet connection. This opportunity is most probably one of the basic reasons for people to tend to use internet. As for internets cost, when we think about the infinite information we get from it, we can say that the cost is not so much. Also when one think about the cost of other information sources, it becomes almost inevitable to use internet as it is so profitable than the other ways of communication. One of the most valid reasons for people to use internet is their being able to communicate with their friends, relatives who are living in other countries, far away from them. Via internet you know it is possible for you to see your friend, relative etc visually and to hear his/her voice as much as you want. In addition to these, internet always provides people with the latest information which is updated and ready to use as a valid information. Everything changes everytime and in todays world it is important to know whats happening in the world. Especially, internet is an indispensable technological development for teachers, businessmen and businesswomen, politicians, students etc who always need the latest, updated information. In this respect it can be said that internet is crucial for these people. Finally to sum up, all these advantages make the internet a part of our life. We tend to use internet even when we only wonder about something. Its quickness, vast amount of the information, and reliable comments and articles by authors and critics affect us in a positive way to use internet as all these are necessary qualifications that we look for before using something as a source. Internet is one of the most important inventions in history. It is a network of milions of computers around the world, connected by phone lines, satellites or cables. Millions of people from all over the world use it every day, so I think that Internet has more advantages than disadvantages. Internet has made the world a real global village which permits us to travel, pay bills or do the shopping without going out from our houses. We can read newspapers, play games or even plan our holidays. A huge merit of Internet is a possibility to download music and films in no time. We can also communicate with other people from all over the world by means of programs like IRC, ICQ or GG. We can join a newsgroup and share our special interests with each other. A very useful thing is an electronic mail, because it is faster than regular post and even air mail. Internet offers a lot of information from every branch of knowledge, so you can find everything for your schoolwork or job there, or just find more about your hobbies. Unfortunately, Internet has several drawbacks, especially in Poland. In our country intrernet is still too expensive and connections are not fast. Generally, one disadvantage of the Internet is a danger of getting used to it, computer can become a drug for some people.In Internet there is so much information that finding what you want can take hours. Other bad point of internet are some web sites which are not suitable for children, for example sites about violence, sex or sects. In conclusion, Internet has more good sides than bad ones, and I think that it's improving all the time, so in the future it will be still better. The fare served by the electronic media everywhere now consists largely of soap operas, interminable sports events, and reality TV shows. True, niche cable channels cater to the preferences of special audiences. But, as a result of this

inauspicious fragmentation, far fewer viewers are exposed to programs and features on science, literature, arts, or international affairs. Reading is on terminal decline. People spend far more in front of screens - both television's and computer - than leafing through pages. Granted, they read online: jokes, anecdotes, puzzles, porn, and e-mail or IM chit-chat. Those who try to tackle longer bits of text, tire soon and revert to images or sounds. With few exceptions, the "new media" are a hodgepodge of sectarian views and fabricated "news". The few credible sources of reliable information have long been drowned in a cacophony of fakes and phonies or gone out of business. It is a sad mockery of the idea of progress. The more texts we make available online, the more research is published, the more books are written - the less educated people are, the more they rely on visuals and soundbites rather than the written word, the more they seek to escape reality and be anesthetized rather than be challenged and provoked. From the dawn of civilization, when writing was the province of the few and esoteric, people have been memorizing information and communicating it using truncated, mnemonic bursts. Sizable swathes of the Bible resemble Twitter-like prose. Poetry, especially blank verse one, is Twitterish. To this very day, newspaper headlines seek to convey information in digestible, resounding bits and bites. By comparison, the novel - an avalanche of text - is a newfangled phenomenon. The Internet (or internet) is a global system of interconnected computer networks that use the standard Internet protocol suite (often called TCP/IP, although not all applications use TCP) to serve billions of users worldwide. It is a network of networks that consists of millions of private, public, academic, business, and government networks, of local to global scope, that are linked by a broad array of electronic, wireless and optical networking technologies. The Internet carries an extensive range of information resources and services, such as the inter-linked hypertext documents of the World Wide Web (WWW) and the infrastructure to support email.

Most traditional communications media including telephone, music, film, and television are being reshaped or redefined by the Internet, giving birth to new services such as Voice over Internet Protocol (VoIP) and Internet Protocol Television (IPTV). Newspaper, book and other print publishing are adapting to Web site technology, or are reshaped into blogging and web feeds. The Internet has enabled and accelerated new forms of human interactions through instant messaging, Internet forums, and social networking. Online shopping has boomed both for major retail outlets and small artisans and traders. Business-tobusiness and financial services on the Internet affect supply chains across entire industries. The origins of the Internet reach back to research of the 1960s, commissioned by the United States government to build robust, fault-tolerant, and distributed computer networks. The funding of a new U.S. backbone by the National Science Foundation in the 1980s, as well as private funding for other commercial backbones, led to worldwide participation in the development of new networking technologies, and the merger of many networks. The commercialization of what was by the 1990s an international network resulted in its popularization and incorporation into virtually every aspect of modern human life. As of June 2012, more than 2.4 billion peoplenearly a third of the world's human populationhave used the services of the Internet.[1] The Internet has no centralized governance in either technological implementation or policies for access and usage; each constituent network sets its own standards. Only the overreaching definitions of the two principal name spaces in the Internet, the Internet Protocol address space and the Domain Name System, are directed by a maintainer organization, the Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers (ICANN). The technical underpinning and standardization of the core protocols (IPv4 and IPv6) is an activity of the Internet Engineering Task Force (IETF), a non-profit organization of loosely affiliated international participants that anyone may associate with by contributing technical expertise.
