Poll Preview: Putting the "I" in Internet

Send Article to a Friend

Poll Preview: Putting the "I" in Internet -- We hear a great deal about how the Internet is changing the face of commerce and publishing and all sorts of important professional and technical pursuits. But what about our personal lives? Tonya has been off being a mother for a couple years now, and she relates below how she's used the Internet to learn a great deal about parenting, which is, not surprisingly, a highly complex topic with lots of information and opinions related to every decision. So for this week, we'd like to ask, "In your personal life, to what extent do you find the Internet a worthwhile source for information, community, learning, or support?" Please do register your opinion on our home page today - I think the results will be quite interesting. [ACE]
