    2. email

    3. Based on observation, YouTube. More & more people are finding it very accessible to produce video content. They are no longer limited to text-based communication, that’s why hordes of Internet users are now grabbing the opportunity to express themselves in 3D.

    4.

    5. Yes, I suppose I am.
    To be considered “Internet savvy”, I guess one should spend a minimum of 2 or 3 hours a day online. Plus, one would be intimately familiar with the popular social networking services such as Facebook, Pownce, Twitter, etc. Also — and I think this is important — an Internet-savvy person would know how to make full use of the browser, that it’s not just for viewing web pages, but a tool for fully experiencing web sites (bookmarking, etc.).

    2. Out of all your Internet activities above, name the one that you cannot live without.

    Obviously, it’s blogging. I’m maintaining numerous blogs so I have to devote a larger part of my online time on them. It’s a great compensation that I get money out of these blogs.

    3. For you, what is the hottest Internet trend nowadays?

    Blogging has always been the hottest trend. Out of it, social networking, which is now considered as the hottest trend, emerged.

    4. If there is one thing that has not been done on the Internet that you would like to see, what would it be?
    – I think everything I want to see has come out – like view the whole world (with the advent of Google Earth).

    5. Do you consider yourself Internet savvy? What qualities would make a person deserving of that adjective?
    – I can consider myself one, well at least I know some of the internet’s hottest trends.

    Social networking, online collaboration

    4. If there is one thing that has not been done on the Internet that you would like to see, what would it be?

    There’s so much stuff online already it’s already quite hard to keep up. I’m sure though that developers are looking for a lot of stuff.

    5. Do you consider yourself Internet savvy? What qualities would make a person deserving of that adjective?

    If you put me beside my friends who only log-in to the internet once in a while then you could probably say I’m internet savvy. BUT, if you put me beside those techie people then I don’t think I am internet savvy. I have so much to learn I believe.

    50% Google Reader and/or reading other blogs
    30% Updating my blog and responding to comments
    10% Checking Emails
    10% Social Networking Sites, chatting, random surfing

    2. E-mail

    3. Blogging and Twitter!

    4. Open Source for EVERYTHING!

    5. Yes. I did not go through any computer training or any computer classes before so everything I know about computers and the Internet are self-learned. I started my online experience in 1998 and got quite interested with making websites so I borrowed a basic HTML writing book from our library and tried understanding the basics not only of HTML but also of the Internet. Eventually, I put up my own personal website, switched to blogging on livejournal, opened up several niche blogs, and signed up with all sorts of social networking sites. So yes, I consider myself Internet-savvy.

    What qualities would make a person deserving of that adjective? I believe that for a person to become deserving of the Internet-savvy modifier, he or she must have above-basic knowledge of the Internet. Above-basic for me means that a person knows more than just social networking sites, messenger chatting, and basic email. Also, for a person to be called Internet-savvy, he or she must be able to find answers to his or her questions on his/her own on the Internet before asking the help of someone else.

Hehe.
