Does internet really help our writing skill? 12 April 2007

Posted by sri nanang setiyono in Menulis.

Imagine if this days there is no a human made creature named internet. The most influence thing in the modern world nowadays, that’s Time Magazine calls to the internet, has changes our ways of thinking, playing, interacting, working, and expressing our thoughts and minds. What would happen if suddenly the global internet network entirely shut down? Every activity in modern human aspect would be disturbed or failed. Airlines flights are stopped. Cellular and digital communications will be halted. Stock exchanges will be crowded.

Let s look back to the past era when internet has not been discovered. People still communicate each other with the existing communication device such as telegrams, telephones, letters, Morse codes and etc. Radio and television also connect human being around the world. Yes indeed, everything changes when internet came slowly but exactly moved the prior communications devices in the behind. But are they perish caused by internet expansion? No. They still exist and become alternative ways to fulfill their communication needs.

So don’t think internet is everything. Internet is important in today human living and next. But without it, we could still do all our work normally. Even it is spreading all over the world, the penetration of internet in many countries is still very low.

Same as another invention, internet is only a supporting apparatus that could not give benefit to human living without helped by people participation. People need to be explained and taught how to use it. I give you illustration that has same perspective to our discussion topic right now. A few years ago I watched TV program broadcasting an Indonesia local famous writer. He said he could not write his works using computer device. He preferred using his typewriter and said computer was too difficult to handle. He said his works was not to be better whether using computer or not.

Today I got the same lesson from a forum I had at National Education Ministry Library in Jakarta. A comment from a literacy activist opened my mind about the importance of human base skills. Wien Muldian, the activist, said blog is only a tool to improve our writing skills. It is not instantly increase our ability and writing mastery if we could not manage and optimize our faith and passion to write. He stressed the importance of writing community to educate all of the members about how to write well and creating a good environment for inseminating new talented writers.

Two new studies show why some people are more attractive for members of the opposite sex than others.

The University of Florida, Florida State University found that physically attractive people almost instantly attract the attention of the interlocutor, sobesednitsy with them, literally, it is difficult to make eye. This conclusion was reached by a series of psychological experiments, which were determined by the people who believe in sending the first seconds after the acquaintance. Here, a curious feature: single, unmarried experimental preferred to look at the guys, beauty opposite sex, and family, people most often by representatives of their sex.

The authors believe that this feature developed a behavior as a result of the evolution: a man trying to find a decent pair to acquire offspring. If this is resolved, he wondered potential rivals. Detailed information about this magazine will be published Journal of Personality and Social Psychology.

In turn, a joint study of the Rockefeller University, Rockefeller University and Duke University, Duke University in North Carolina revealed that women are perceived differently by men smell. During experiments studied the perception of women one of the ingredients of male pheromone-androstenona smell, which is contained in urine or sweat.

The results were startling: women are part of this repugnant odor, and the other part is very attractive, resembling the smell of vanilla, and the third group have not felt any smell. The authors argue that the reason is that the differences in the receptor responsible for the olfactory system, from different people are different.

It has long been proven that mammals (including human) odor is one way of attracting the attention of representatives of the opposite sex. A detailed article about the journal Nature will publish.
