Hey guys if you have time can you just write one sentence or several dot points about what you like and dislike about getting your news online as opposed to your traditional papers/tv. Actually here is the actual wording of thge question. Yeah, I cant be bothered chasing ppl around to get their responses - I need like 20 people so hope you guys can help me. Thanks.

Discussion: Talk to as many people as possible about how they feel about using the Net rather than traditional news and current affairs services. Try to pin down what it is they like or dislike about each. Post your findings in the forum. (by 29/3/06)
