Myth Six - Computer Science is just about the Internet.
Computer Science is about much more than the Internet.
- Indeed, the Internet (and the World Wide Web which is built on the foundation of the Internet) has become an essential part of our lives, but Computer Science covers much more than the Internet.
- The Internet is a global network and a set of tools that facilitates communications between computer systems. In Computer Science, developers commonly utilize the Internet for software development. In fact, it is the software on the Internet, NOT the Internet itself, which truly impacts people's lives.
- New applications software such as Facebook and YouTube is being developed by computer professionals to be executed on top of the Internet to further enhance our lives.
