Your Internet Consultant - The FAQs of Life Online


One of the Internet's most important, although often overlooked, uses is enabling people at different organizations and locations to engage in collaborative activity--to work together in a shared environment, collaboratively write a paper, or play together. It should come as no surprise that the Internet is home to a huge population of people who play games--and have found in the Internet a way to find and interact with fellow players.

Games on the Internet may not be as flashy as those on your Nintendo or Sega, but the Internet does offer the capability to play against other people--not just computerized opponents. As with the Internet's other tools, the people with whom you're communicating may be right down the hall or across the globe. Besides, it's certainly more satisfying to play (and beat) a human opponent than a digital one.
