the WWW and internet and WEB!

yerp, selamat hari raya aidiladha to everyone! (that still read this blog)

oh well, im no fancy blogger with fancy stories. i prefer not to write it here if i can.
im still olskool - meet people outside and lets talk til morning.
oh, speakign about that, i miss that.

i mean, look at us. what has the internet done to us?
lets reverse back to my time, back in 1996, when internet is just new . jaring brought it to malaysia.

i was in standard 6, there was no internet. no mp3s, no social networking site, no napster, no google, chatting, no ym, no whatsoever. the only medium you can use, is home phone ! yeah bebeh, getting the trouble of calling the person at home, and sometimes u gotta go tru few "firewalls" . hahaha, what i mean, their parents, sisters or whatever !

well i miss that. for those who dont owns home phone, we hav to go to their house and shout their name. ahahha

you know why i miss all that and i hates internet so much?
yes its true, internet give the endless opportunities to keep in touch with your friends, and to get to know new friends. i admit it, since i plug myself into the internet, ive got myself so many friends from it.

but why its bad?

because, for example, A and B live in the same town, they always chatting together, read each other's blog or do the social-networking thingy. they will just chat and chat, because its "easier" and "simpler", and you can keep your fat up your ass more!

people became so lazy ! A and B wont have that excitement of meeting and hanging out with each other anymore. you chat and do so many stuffs on the net, and you have less and less things to tell each other. think about a situation, when you're somewhere like at the airport, and u meet a friend that u havent meet for like 3 years!

think about it. its about human interactions and socialization .
its getting lesser, and lesser each day. i've seen this. its getting bad. people spent too much time on the internet, you'd probably miss out so many things out there.
ive been there, and done that. and i see people still get hype on things like facebook. its pure eeevil . its a tool. tool of the unknown .

let me tell you what i think about this, and why im spending my time writing this thing.
lets go through the internet timeframe in malaysia first.

1996 - internet first available to public, via Jaring
1997 - IRC is getting hot and hotter! another reason why you should learn to use internet
1998 - popular mIRC clients was available on almost every PC you can find!
1998 - CyberCafe grew like mushrooms ! rapidly opened everywhere
1999 - the WWW is getting hotter, no social network website available yet. people start to write their own web log. or as known as BLOG today. community sites like circles99 and communityzero rapidly growing
2000 - The golden era of IRC ! i was a part of this.
2001 - After almost 7 years, IRC was doomed ! servers blocked malaysian users, people getting bored. almost 70% left IRC. by this time, people just use internet not more than 1 hour everyday
2002 - The Dawn of SOCIAL Networking! Friendster was available to public ! people so caught up with the "testimonial" thingy, and internet became hot again. people spent sooo much time on this.
2003 - Myspace was born! - i dont have to say much about this. now they have like millions of users registered. my id number was 666306, try to figure out whats yours and compare to my number (:
2004 - FREE blogging websites available. blogger, fotopages, and many more! people dont have to buy their own webspace for blog anymore.
2005 - email getting bigger and bigger!Flickr, fotopages was born.
2006 - everybody will have at least a SITE on the internet.
2007 - Facebook was born! and people get hype for their web2.0 interface, shameful.
2008 - the facebook era, photo tagging, tag.
2009 -??

try to think, how much time you've spent within this period of time. and how much time you wasted, and how much time you spent wisely.

please people,
computer isnt your home, internet isnt your world. you've got soul youve got body, go out to the real world.
its lame to spend half of your day on facebook, doing that "post" thign and whtever.
