It is amazing what the internet has became over the years. Everything moves at the speed of light online, it is hard to keep up. There are a few things in the video that I would like to point out. I will note them below.

The amount of malicious intent on the internet is getting worse by the day. This is why you need to make sure you have your computer checked out at least every six months by a professional. By professional I mean somebody who does this for a living. Not your brother-in-law who thinks he knows everything. If you need a referral to a reputable IT professional, contact me and I will hook you up.

The social web and online media is growing by leaps and bounds. Everything is becoming more interconnected. I urge you to think wisely about what you share online. The opinion that people have about you is no longer generated based on real life encounters with you, it is now predominately based off of what they see you sharing about yourself online. Rebuilding your reputation is going to become near impossible due to ones past being easily searchable online. If you have already caused a mess for yourself and need help clearing it, I can give you some ideas on how to clear some of it up, at the very least burry it. Always save your passwords somewhere safe. Use an email address from a provider that will not delete your email if you cancel service with them. For example, use Gmail for your email instead of Comcast. If you cancel your Comcast service then you will lose your email and will not be able to cancel your online accounts.

Just some suggestions. It’s going to be interesting to see how the web shapes peoples lives over the next 10 years.
