    "Information Age is a term that has been used to refer to the present economic era. The name alludes to the global economy's shift in focus away from the production of physical goods (as exemplified by the industrial age) and toward the manipulation of information."

    Have you been educated (through school, uni, or various other training services) on the information age?

    Sometimes when I'm looking at craigslists

    Have you used online shopping and how regularly?

    Yes and maybe once a month

    Do you feel safe sharing your personal information on the world wide web and do use virus protection to protect your information?

    Just my name and pay pal unless I KNOW the place is legit

    Social connections
    Are you signed up to any social networks, chat rooms, instant messengers etc?

    I actually do have some kind of life so no... wait. I'm on a mechanics network.

    How often do you access/log in to these social pastimes?

    In that respect,I have no life. This I do daily.

    Do you use these to meet new friends or stay in contact with current/past friends?


    News / TV

    Yes. For watching the Obama speech and for my PS2

    Do you own a mobile phone?

    every 5 years or so

    Is this used for business, family/friends contact, emergencies and/or other uses?

    All of the above

    Are you signed up for online banking


    How do you pay your bills

    with money

    When withdrawing money do you use atm's or make a withdrawal from a bank

    I make one ATM cash withdrawal a month. When it's gone I consider myself broke.

    Do you prefer to purchase items with cash or with a card


    How has your way of life changed since you started experiencing the information age?

    I refuse to answer that. The kids are watching.
