On this 4th week I’m gonna reflect on the online world of mine. I was introduced to the online world since I was in primary six. Since then, I started to interact to people in the real world and the virtual world as well. I found the online world really interesting and surprising. I meet new friends, knowledges, amazing stuff, and how people do amazing things around the global.
For the inventor of the internet, first of all, I wanna thank you from the bottom of my heart. Thank you.
On the way the technology was rapidly developed, I already became an internet addict. I surf the internet everyday even though I don’t know what to look up. It became one of my primary needs since I also keep in touch with my friends in Indonesia when I study abroad, and the only way is through online network.
I used to be a member of a bounded group when I was still in Jakarta. It was a car community whom the members were highly active and it got me really involved to the internet community. I began to learn and dive deeper to the internet world since then. For example when I had a car problem, I would put my question in the internet and surprisingly, there were actually a lot of useful replies. I also introduced to new people through that community and we had an actual meeting in the real world afterwards.
The most valuable things for me is actually the fact that internet community keeps you active in interacting to people although you are in a impossible situation to meet one. For example like when I’m having a class, in the free time I could send the pictures of what I have learned to my mother, who is currently in jakarta, in a blink of an eye. For me, those kind of advantages are the ones I appreciate the most and the actual main use of the internet network.
