The irony of the internet is that it is the greatest symbol of globalization, while at the same time being the tool that allows millions of people to stay close to home in a way that could never even have been imagined until fairly recently. So, that’s where I’m at - using the internet to keep connected in every way. I can keep up with Premier League soccer just as if I were in England, read the news, watch all sorts of content online, download shows and movies, and keep up with family and friends. Music is important too. I play the guitar. I want to hear those songs, find the lyrics, and find the chords from some magical space in the ether.
As a bit of a nerd I also enjoy online crosswords, chess and quizzes – all stuff I couldn’t do where I live if it weren’t for the Internet. The only hobbies I have that I can’t use the Internet for are drinking beer, swimming in the ocean and the actual playing of the guitar. Unfortunately, there is no app for any of those, at least that I am aware of.With the Internet, you’re never far from home or your interests, unless you want to be.
