The internets capability to reach millions of people world wide allows for great change. Change in general is the most positive aspect of the internet. Over the past few years, technology has not only changed jobs, but it has created them. The article states that the internet gives people a vast amount of data. In my opinion, the increasing amount of data accessible to people is very important.
