economists say that this economy may collapse and consequently make a great disaster in our world market. In my opinion, what these economists are saying is not wrong one problem of Internet business is that you can create a false economy with less jobs than the formal economy. Another problem in Internet business are the called “hackers” that destroy Internet pages, and can cost a lot of money and problems to the buyers using that Internet page. For example, there was a famous case of Chinese hackers that had access to all the major credit card companies through the internet and bought thousand of things through the Internet using other people card number, that he had gotten from the credit card companies. 3.2 Influence In Education Another area that the use of Internet has

changed is the way people gain education and information. Education has changed dramatically since the invention of the Internet; education has been redefined by using the Internet. For example, twenty years ago people used to spend several hours in a library for example, to research about computers. Nowadays, we access the Internet and in a few minutes we have the information we need. I think that Internet has redefined the way people obtain information. However, we have not only redefined the way we obtain information but also the way we transmit information. For example, in some universities we already can have normal classes from our personal computer. We don’t need to go a classroom to learn. We just turn on the computer on the time schedule, access the Internet and watch

the class through the Internet. Imagine that I missed an English 101 class. I wood just get the file in the Internet and watch the class and get all the information given in that class. I think that Internet can help students to be more effective and productive in their classes. Here in Gonzaga we can now register and see our grades by the Internet, saving time for every one involved with this process. The Internet can be a solution to resolve the problem of little physical space in universities because we will not need so many classrooms. We would have our classes from our houses. It is an alternative that Gonzaga University should take in consideration because physical space is becoming a major problem for Gonzaga. 3.3 Influence in Communication Who hasn’t an email account

nowadays? Or who hasn’t used a chat room? Internet has made all this available to the world. It has revolutionized communication forever. For example, we have the Internet phone, where you can make phone call from your computer to another computer to anywhere in the world and just pay for a local call. Isn’t this amazing. For example, in my case, that I live far from home, Internet has brought me a great benefit. Instead of paying those huge bills in the end of the month I just connect to the Internet and make a phone call to my Dads computer and talk all night long and just paying a local phone call. Internet has made phone calls cheaper and it has shortened distances. In a near future I think it will substitute the phone. Another internet tool that has changed communication

is the email. According to the article “ A Email or a Letter,” email has become the most used way of sending messages between teenagers and in a near future it will become the most used way of sending messages between all ages. Emails are becoming the most used way of sending messages. Emails are substituting the formal letters because they are much cheaper and quicker to reach the receiver. For example, I prefer sending an email to my family in Brazil because it is free and they can receive it instantaneously. In the other hand if I sent a letter it will take at least a week to get there and I would have to pay at least 20 dollars for the mailing. Emails have become such a big advantage than the formal letter that lately, the CNN News mentioned, that the US government is

thinking in charging for email like normal letters. 4. Survey This survey was made with thirty Gonzaga students. The survey had the purpose to analyze how has the Internet influenced their lives and what do they think about the Internet. Our results were that 70% of the surveyed has a compute at home and 100% has access to a computer. 70% of the time they are using the computer is to navigate through the Internet.67% of the surveyed said that they had bought something through the Internet. 100% of the surveyed has an email account and uses email at least 4 times a week. With this result we can conclude that Internet is the most used tool of a computer and that in a near future the Internet will me the most used tool to do Businesses. We also can conclude that email has become the
