I was thinking about what has changed since I was child in the 90s after reading the Venting Thread. My computer was without internet. The most distant my communications got was calling my friends and family in the neighboring states. The only place I could get the news was TV or the paper. Today, I communicate with people that are in almost every state and across the world on various forums and sites. I could use Facebook to communicate with people anywhere on the planet. I read and watch the news online most of time and dislike most of what is on TV today. I do wonder how anyone survived without the internet.
