It is interesting, as I was preparing and updating course materials for our fantastic Web Design Comprehensive program, I stumbled across this great article titled “The doomsday prediction” which is a a fun article in Newsweek from 1995 “The Internet? Bah!” Who would have thought that the internet would be such a prevailing force in our daily life. Now go to this article titled “The State of the internet today!” The amazing progress that the internet has made over the years is simply amazing.
I remember my first exposure to Web Design going back 12 years ago. The rudimentary things we were able to accomplish using the now defunct Microsoft FrontPage (that I thought at that time was pretty amazing). What I am able accomplish today as a Web Designer is really fantastic, from designing complex software interfaces, to designing custom eCommerce sites to designing sites that will display properly on a mobile device, it is simply astounding how the world of web design has matured from its infancy!
What about you? How have you see the internet impacting your life? For me it allows my children to have contact with their grandparents, almost live through skype (I guess that is why I am such a strong proponent of our Live Interactive courses). It is funny to see Savta saying to my daughter, Elisheva, to smile because she wants to take a picture through the computer. How cool is that! Or how about the news about surgeries done over the internet through robots!
How about a great Ha Ha cartoon (sometimes cheesy jokes are sorta good too!) Enjoy this one I found!
