Internet Then And Now

In the early days of the internet, as I remember the first time I connected on-line, it's only in text form (yeah, very boring). There were no photos, videos just texts, and you can only connect to libraries like the library of congress, and government sites, nothing else.

In those days, there were only mirc where you can chat on-line. No Facebook, Google+, Youtube and others. And yet, I still find abuse on some chat rooms, where they talk to you and send you lewd photos.

Now, it seems that abuse is very rampant. Copyright infringements like those mp3s being uploaded and shared, videos, porn websites everywhere, which also infect your computers with malware, viruses, etc.

When I see all of these, I can see that the Internet is used for evil purposes rather than good. And, I sometimes wonder if the Internet will give us a better future.
