One Way The Internet Has Changed The World

Leo Babauta commenting on how the Internet has changed the world for writers:
...on Guam, we have computers and broadband and even wireless Internet access, but not a lot of awareness. It’s interesting, though, because as a writer, my market has always been limited to this small island of 160,000 people, through the local newspaper or the small local magazines we have here. To go beyond this small audience, until recently, I would have had to leave and go to a big city like San Francisco or L.A. or New York to try to compete with all the other writers over there. However, with the rise of blogs, I’ve been able to reach a global audience without leaving home. That’s an amazing change, not only for me but potentially for anyone here on Guam (and in other limited areas around the world) who have the talent and desire to reach above our previous limitations.
