Using examples from Kraut and Lundmark’s previously mentioned research, Stoll asks, “Will the proliferation of shallow, distant social ties make up for the loss of close local links?” The question Stoll raises here is entirely valid, and just as concerning; as the more time one spends online, the more time one subsequently spends alone, away from people he or she could be potentially interacting with.

The internet, government, and corporations are all out to get you, or at least that is what Bruce Schneier would like convince you of in his work titled “The Internet Is a Surveillance State”. Schneier identifies many reasons as to why a surveillance state is a negative, such as constant tracking, habit profiling, and lack of privacy both in public and in the comfort of your own home.
