In the past, knowledge was stored in books, but now it is stored in the Internet. Do you think the advantages outweigh the disadvantages?过去知识储藏在书籍里，现在知识保存在网络中。是利是弊?
Today we all believe that knowledge is just at the tip of our fingers because all knowledge seems to be have been stored electronically and is easilyaccessible on the Internet. There have been mixed responses to this development, and personally I think more and more people will rely on the Internet for knowledge though the printed books will never completely disappear.

Storing knowledge in the Internet has obvious advantages. Owing to itsvirtually unlimited capacity, the Internet can store all knowledge in the world. This makes it quite unnecessary for us to spend that much money constructing thebrick-and-mortar libraries. Then as long as we have Internet connection, we can find whatever we desire to know no matter where we are. So, rather than carrying heavy books on American culture with me, I can sit at a coffee table and with a few simple keyboard clicks, I can have immediate access to any book in the world on that topic. What is more, if I would like to share some important knowledge with my friend, again a few simple clicks would do, but were the knowledge stored in the book form, then I would probably have to find time to go to the post-office and send the book to him/her, which is far more time-consuming and less efficient.

Keeping knowledge in the Internet, however, will make us excessively dependent on electronic devices. Simply put, in case of power-off or computer break-down, we will be thrown into a terribly helpless situation. But this is not a problem for people who learn things from books. Additionally, many people simply prefer reading real books for knowledge to online sources, because they believe books are more reliable and they find themselves emotionally and intellectually more attached to knowledge in books.

My conclusion, then, is that knowledge will increasingly find its way to the Internet and it will make knowledge storage more economical and convenient, yet books will never vanish because there are always people who would like toembrace knowledge in printed form.
