I was doing some research about the internet and how information is shared via the internet. I found this website which gave a lot of information regarding different views about sharing information on the internet http://www.nap.edu/html/infosys_env/knauer.html Internet Global Environmental Information Sharing by JOSHUA KNAUER and MAURICE RICKARD.
I would like to comment briefly on the positive effects of the internet. I agree with the article, and believe the internet is a valuable and growing resource for the US and many other countries. The internet provides an inexpensive way to obtain information and connect with other people and groups around the world.
