I have spent rather more time than I can spare on this time-gobbler lately! I needed to do some research and the computer screen was closer then the Town library (and, knowing the way Murphy’s Law works, the library probably would not have had what I needed! 🙂
But it did set me thinking: how much internet time is too much? Like television, it sucks us in sometimes.
“Dinner’s almost ready.”
“Yes, OK, I’ll just print this…”
“Dinner’s on the table!”
“Yours is on the stove!”
“I’m going to bed!”
And for some (I suspect, a great many), social sites like Facebook and MYspace and even blogging provide a contact that may be lacking in lives. Sad, but probably all too true.
So…when does a healthy interest in a hobby become an insidious consumer?
I could probably stretch this to essay length, but I have letters to answer, lino to carve, all sorts of pressing issues. And I must just read my favourite blogs first…
I’ll leave you with this. No, not one of mine. I told you, I’m busy!
