MY WINDOW OF THE WORLD

I discovered Internet because of Egyptian cats ! We came back from holidays in Egypt and I was intrigued about their history why they were considered as goddesses and also mummified cats were found in royal tombs. Mr. G. told me if I don't want to carry tons of books from the library home, he would show me how to use Internet. I was a bit reluctant, he was an analyst programmer since 1971 when USB sticks had the size and look of a car wheel. He always talked about computer and as I didn't understand a thing I sat in a corner and faked to listen when the men talked computer ! I was disgusted of everything concerningt computers.

But thinking it over I thought why not, I give it a try and from this day on when I found my first Egyptian cats forums, blogs, articles, and I even discovered Wikipedia, I was impressed ! Slowly but with more and more curiosity, I finally created a blog about cats and Blogging became my Hobby and Internet my work utensil.

If Internet allowed me to follow up the development of my little Grandson who lived in Amsterdam it was thanks to Internet. I saw him each week from birth on thanks to Skype and later thanks to Whatsapp, til today and he is 9 by now. If I hadn't learned to use the computer and Internet it wouldn't have been possible.

Internet is a great invention, it brings people from all over the whole world together. I have met a blog friend from South Africa in London, I have spent holidays in the South of France thanks to my Blog. Same with Canadian friends and Australians which without Internet I would never ever met.

For me personally, the Internet is the best invention of the last century. With its help, it has become my window of the world.

Glad you decided to learn how to use internet. It sure is one of the best inventions of the century. I love that it has become so much easier to be in touch with my family and friend :-)

Making it easier to keep in touch with family and friends is definitely one of the best things from the internet.

It has kept me staying closer than I would have done with only letters, but I also made some good friends over the years, some of whom I have met.

I agree that it is Avery useful tool and helps bring people closer together.

It is hard for me to imagine life without the internet. In the early days of the internet people were suggesting that one day people who don't have access to the internet will be disadvantaged, financially and in other ways. I think we have reached that time.

I was a bit slow learning how to use the internet, now I couldn't live without it and google. Without the internet I would never have made a trip to Brussels.

I love this! I can’t believe women of our “vintage” who refuse to learn to use this wonderful tool. For all the reasons you give so clearly. Seems like the older a person gets, the more useful and fun it would be,.
