Yes MobileMania, many folks "may have his/her own way to define to a layman." So what is your definition? Similarly, what is the population to which you will be addressing your definition? Further, what purpose do you hope to serve? --- For instance, --- A technical understanding? --- A historical / developmental understanding? --- A social/cultural reflection cast by influence of Internet? --- A reflection on Internet impact on business and commerce? or upon science/academia/government agencies? --- An understanding that paces with the emerging hardware that is becoming more popular? (e.g. hardware defining/influencing Internet) Take a shot. :) Perhaps with your own efforts displayed, others may be able to contribute with comparison and contrast. Without you taking further participation, potential helpers must rely upon broad-based resourcing such as wiki and search engine.

All right then. You've been successful and the matter is now in the past. We don't actually "close" thread topics, but in fact we will consider this matter closed. Best Regards

I would define the Internet as a worldwide system of interconnected networks and computers.
