The Internet Prison – the Influence of the Internet on Our Lives

By the end of 2007 there were over a billion Internet users (about 20% of the world’s population) world wide, not bad for a population of almost 7 billion. That’s a growth of 265% from 2006. [Source]

What lies behind the passion for the virtual?
