Why is the internet so important

Im just a 19 year old girl that knows nothing. But I kinda like to think about things. Like the internet, its almost magical.Thanks to the trans-ocean-data cables can I talk to anyone all around the world in real time.

For me thats magical, or well, hard to understand. But in the end are we are just apes with smartphones on a fragile tiny island in space looking into the sky and wondering how the universe works.

here are some links why the internet is the solution to most of our problems

The internet is one gigantic well-stocked fridge ready for raiding; for some strange reason, people go up there and just give stuff away. —Mega 'Zines, Macworld (1995)
