One of the best things when you are an online person is that you get to access a lot of information for FREE. You don’t need to own the latest encyclopedia or go to the library to learn things. When you are online, you get to learn many things. Aside from that, if you want to make sure, you can do hundreds to thousands of cross-references.
Example, a friend of mine was talking about buying a horse tack. Since I am not an equestrian or know about horses, I don’t know what she was talking about. And since I don’t want to be rude, I decided to research about horse tacks so that I could participate on what she was talking about. Luckily, I was able to read and learn more about horse tacks and I made my friend happy. We enjoyed an afternoon of learning since I was able to share to her some of the websites I found while I was trying to learn about horse tacks.
