How Net savvy are you on a scale of one to ten?

What do you enjoy doing online?
Email, getting news from various sources, reading up on music and movies.

Any favourite sites?
I like because it is an independent news and information site that gives unbiased views on world and national events

What's your idea of a perfect Web site? Have you thought about setting up your own site?
A perfect Web site? I guess one with no popup ads. I have not yet thought of making my own site… maybe sometime.

Is there something you'd like to buy or sell online?
I like to buy books and music online because of the selection and prices one can get.

Do you use the Net for work?
Yes, I am emailing from my day job right now. I use it to search for work related things all the time.

Any strange experiences online?
Not really. Except maybe typing my own name into search engines and seeing all these links pop up. It's a bit crazy!

What do you like most about the Internet?
The freedom of speech.

What do you hate most about it?
The ads and the JUNK MAIL!

If you could change anything about the Internet, what would it be?
I would outlaw spam. Maybe create a virus that traces where the spam mail originates and then crashes that computer!

Is there any one famous personality you'd love to chat online with?
Hmm...maybe George Bush, so I can talk to him about his foreign policy. And then maybe Mira Nair, to ask her for an acting job.
