My parents, especially my mother, have always referred to the internet as evil. My mom is convinced that it’s just full of porn, child molesters and other filth and while she’s not entirely wrong, all of my past attempts to convince her that my internet experience did not involve those things has only ended in a lecture about their collective evils. To my absolute shock, when I visited them for Christmas last year, I found a shiny black Dell desktop hooked up to a modem! Their stance had suddenly changed as everyone they knew had been asking for their emails and telling them to “just Google it”, which had bewildered my mom. Somehow, my Dad had convinced her that it was time to do the unthinkable and get internet access.
