Has the Internet changed the way you think and act even when you’re not at a computer? It has me. I find myself speaking in LOLcat when I’m making puns with my friend. I find myself thinking in terms of regular expressions when I want to correct something I’ve said. I rarely remember URLs anymore, instead focusing on the search terms I fed to Google to find the sites I use.
