It's 3 AM in the morning where I am. I've been surfing the net on and off for about 4 hours now. Where I live, no one celebrates chirstmas, but still I have a feeling that when I will look out of the window it will snow (it never snows here) and there will be tiny blinking lights on my neighbour's roof, and when I wake up in the morning I'm gonna go downstairs and we will all open up our x-mas presents. We will not.
This is the strength of the internet. This is why globalisation is just a question of how long will it take for every person in this world to have an internet connection.
