My Perception of the Internet
// Posted by Caitlin on 05/15/2015 (11:17 PM)
As a photographer, at least a quarter of my time is spent on the internet. I tend to find the internet scary but I have not always thought that. Since becoming a photographer, I have witnessed many incidents where images of fully dressed children have been taken from a photographer’s page and posted onto child pornography websites. Since I have begun reading the books, I have changed my beliefs as to what exactly I think the internet is. It also is still very hard to believe that we only have access to 25% of the internet. I know a lot of people think of the internet as a physical place but I do not. When I think of the internet, I think about outer space and shooting stars. Overall, it’s a lot easier for me to think about what the internet is to me than it is to try and describe it.
Like a few others have said, I would love if the posting time was just a bit later. I really hate the discussion board through Blackboard so since we couldn’t come up with an agreement last Monday, I am game for anything except for Blackboard’s discussion board. Would prefer to either use the blog or Facebook and not Google Docs as I think it would just be too confusing to keep up with.
