Abstract

This IQP involved researching and analyzing data on how the Internet is having an effect on individuals and society. It looked at three key areas: young people who grew up using the Internet, the political implications that Internet technology brings, and the discussion of the Internet and its effects among the educated public. Data from scientific studies was evaluated and used to draw conclusions about these effects where appropriate, and news articles and other media were looked at to provide a rational perspective on the topics in modern society.
