1) What do you first remember most fondly about using the internet?:

Probably Runescape or MSN, a new way to be 'social' and have pen pals as such without knowing them.

2) What do you think has changed the most since your early years on the web?:

It's now more all consuming, and is less of a choice and more of a necessity in our culture/society. To use it is much more integrated into us, and how we experience the world. All the answers are already there for us, so we can no longer allow ourselves to be wrong.

3) How do you use the internet and what do you mostly use it for?:

Organising (exhibitions, writing work etc.), looking at bikes. I do use it for things like Instagram too, but I'd say this is more out of habit than a choice.

4) What is your biggest concern about the internet and/or the future of the web?:

How integral it is to life, and how I spend so much time on it without actually spending time on it, ie. Developing or doing things, just allowing it to filter away.

5) What would you change about the way we use the internet or how it is controlled now?:

I never think of computer/screen time as 'quality' or down time, instead as a necessary thing to be doing at that given moment, so l don't particularly get to enjoy the websites I like, so a way of forcing me to spend less time on it so that it was more like an encyclopedia or dictionary - it didn't get used apart from when you need it or want it and make more effort to look into it.

6) Link your favourite website (This could be a link to a site that you love now or simply a site that you loved from your internet childhood):
