Metaphors can tell us many things about abstract concepts, that would be hard to grasp with concrete questions. We often engage in discussions about how the internet is chaging us, and how it will influence future generations - but we hardly ever ask them! For this book I asked elementary school kids to define the internet in a metaphor, in words and drawing. The diversity of their answers uncovers a broad spectrum of approaches from the most conventional ones to the absolute surprises. The book gives space to the reader to immerse in these answers and think about their future implications.
