  • The Internet is the instrument the most significant of our time. A great tool which allows the emancipation of the individual by the informative interconnection. But it is an asset to double-edged sword, because the individual, even as an adult , is not always able to synthesize the information flow that are circulating. We protect our children from the unknown in the street, but we are not vigilant enough to protect millions of connected individuals.
