Discussing the Internet.

Extracts from this document...

Introduction

Here I discuss, the most mind blasting, and endless medium that touches the hearts of so many million people-"INTERNET"; the two sides of this coin, its boons and its banes. Is internet a boon or a bane for me? I don't really know. But I am sure it is not any one of it. Maybe I will be able to find the answer for this question if I think about how and what I use the internet for. I use internet mostly for chatting, mailing, project references, entertainment such as music, movies, games, and so on. I am not sure if chatting is advantageous or disadvantageous because it is economical compared to talking through the phone. It is possible to see the other person, and talk to that person at the same time. If a person does not have the knowledge of computer or if the person is illiterate that person would not be able to use this facility. ...read more.

Middle

This leads to less physical activity and the light signals effect the eye sight adversely. These games have isolated youngsters inside the computer from the interaction with the outer world. One very adult activity of the internet is checking the news. Though news can be looked up at the newspaper or the television, the internet can avail most recent bits of news. The television channels have their own schedule of timing (so they can not cast any news at any time), and newspapers take time to be printed and to be supplied. News in this form is stored and can be referred when needed. There are also other kinds of stored information that can be researched. The internet has all kinds of information. It is one medium covering and combining facts on all fields. This can be disadvantageous because the first few facts on the topic we are referring to satisfies us. We don't really see if the information is proper, correct information. ...read more.

Conclusion

The salary for each IT personality ranges in lakes so lots of youngsters prefer taking up this field. One major bane of the internet is that it has so far reached only the literate, especially the English literate. So we can't really say that its reach is vast. It greatly increases the peer pressure on students among themselves. If a student in a class does not have access to the internet he/ she s considered inferior. If a person in the same class knows everything about internet then he or she is considered superior. In everything that exists there are advantages and disadvantages, but all that matters is the way we use it. We should try and benefit maximum out of it. Nothing can be black or white there is always the intermediate-grey. These greys, blacks and whites are faced by every single of use directly or indirectly. I feel there are more advantages regarding the internet, considering it is a developing field we need to give it time to get rid of the backwardness. I would like to conclude by saying that 'the globe is becoming a village through internet'. ...read more.

Response to the question

In summary, I would grade the report as an 'Pass'. The report contains quite alot of their opinion, which is fine as long as their have some evidence to back this up, which the report doesn't contain. On the flip side, the content from background research is quite good. The report mentions how by sending an e-mail, this will impact on delivery couriers and there may need to down scale and remove people from the company. This is in-depth and detailed, although one suggestion could be to use the case study of Royal Mail, as there are currently in the process of altering a number of their systems to suit today's demand.

Level of analysis

Some of the report doesn't have one clear answer, as the report states 'I am not sure if chatting is advantageous or disadvantageous'. The report needs to be clear and this needs to have one clear answer. If there is any confusion, then this will not achieve high marks. If it's an opinion, in order to achieve high marks the student will need to justify their opinion, which will make the report high quality. This is the case though-out the report, in other cases the report states 'One very adult activity of the internet is checking the news'. This is an opinion, and hasn't been justified. In order to make this opinion justified, it would be good to find the market share of an on-line newspaper, such as the Daily Mail Online.

Quality of writing

The student makes reference to the ability to talk with another person using face-to-face contact, which is known as 'Video Conferencing'. The report has described a number of technical terms, however the student hasn't in-putted these terms into the report. This may be due to the student has forgotten, or he/she are unaware of the technical term. The report is in 'Bold', which would make it quite difficult to read. In order to achieve high marks, this would need to be as 'Regular'.
