The Future of Internet
My Forum Paper was designed to that typical person who is always connected to the Internet and has an interest in knowing how Internet has influenced our society in this century and their lives. However it will be more directed to our traditional Gonzaga student, who has that normal personal computer and used normally to navigate through the Internet and would like to know how the Internet influenced our society and their lives.
