EDITOR'S NOTE | #TasteOfTheInternet

In 1989, computer scientist Tim-Bernes Lee penned a rather obscure-sounding paper. Named as ‘Information Management: A Proposal,’ the paper proved to be a critical turning point for the world.

Since then, the Internet has revolutionised the way we live, learn and communicate. In almost everything we do, we use the Internet – from ordering a pizza to starting up a business.

While the world is racing to catch up with the changes sparked by the Internet, some may argue against the consequences of these changes.

We decided, in this issue of CATCH Online, to explore the various aspects of the Internet and its profound influence on our day-to-day lives. We spoke with influencers, social media enthusiasts and the like to uncover more.

Our cover feature, Khairul Ridzwan, is familiar with the sweet taste of success from showcasing his talent online. He takes us through how posts on social media paved the way for his career.

Prolific YouTuber, Umehara Keiji, better known as the Arcade Ninja, shows us how easy it is to be a content creator as he battles it out with our editor in a dart challenge!

We are proud to say that we did not ignore the bitter nature that the Web brings with it. Look out for an insightful read about #goals online and how its meaning is being diminished.

Makeup enthusiasts can also look forward to our test of weird beauty trends that we have found online.

These are just some of the articles that we have for you in this issue. Sit back, relax and tuck your napkins into your collar as the editorial team of CATCH has donned the chef’s hat to present to you, ‘The Taste of The Internet.’

 

Bon Appétit!
