I agree mostly with Melissa's description though I would use "affect"
instead of "change," since "change" has a lot of assumptions that may
not apply to everyone's work, or to all of the ways the internet may
interact with individuals, societies and cultures. So, maybe "affect
or interact with" as opposed to "change."
