What is the internet to you? Very much actually, since I got the opportunity to this digital knowledge gap of mine! I feel a little less "gone with the wind".
I just want to say it's such a pleasure, a genuine pleasure to meet you, and be "across the table" from you without leaving my living room... What do you think is the most surprising thing about being your age, and online now, after all this time? Is it any different at your age than being 5 years old? Hi! It was lovely meeting you too! Thank you for everything! I wouldn't say that things were surprising, but I was exited and intrigued by how fast the internet is and how much I didn't know about random stuff. I kinda feel smarter, haha!
Hej Kerstin. Vad tycker du har vart mest intressant med den nyupptäckta världen med internet för din egen del? Hello, Kerstin. What in your opinion has been the most interesting part of this new world of the internet? I really liked Google. It gave me a chance to learn more about searching methods, digital news and lots of art. I really like arts and crafts and Google was a good way to find new art pieces.

This past week must have been quite the experience for you, what would you have found to be the most difficult aspect of the internet to wrap your head around? Everything has been very pleasant but at the same time very difficult. I'm sure i'll continue learning more about the internet! I'm up for the challenge!
Do you think the world would be a better or a worse place without internet? No, I actually think that the world is better with access to internet. It opens up so many posibilities!

Hi, Kerstin! Welcome to the internet! Like the world you know so well, it includes all kinds and takes all kinds. My question: Now that you have started your digital journey, what do you think you will get out of it? Now that this door to the largest trove of information, misinformation, and everything in between has been opened for you, what, if anything, is on your to-do list? What are you excited to explore? Second question if you have time: You have access to more information and a greater ability to source and move people and materials at this very moment than any Pharaoh of Egypt, Emperor of Rome, or Khan of Mongolia. Just a few clicks in a few hours can send tons of material and thousands of people into motion all over the world. What does this mean for you? Is it a good thing? I think it will make it easier to find news and to learn about such things I would not normally come in contact with. And what I found to be very exciting exploring was definitely Skype!
