Recently trying to spend some time on my favorite social bookmarking service, I had a little surprise.
Cute design aside, I like the way the message implies that the only reason to be in front of a computer screen is to be Stumbling, but even the power users interviewed on StumbleBlogger have other online pursuits as well.
Why is it that if you’re not surfing the Internet, you would be outside?
It used to be that if you were playing video games too much, parents would scold that you should turn them off and head out to get some sunlight. However, this study claims that the Internet has not (yet?) had a significant impact on the habits of youth using public libraries i.e. the youth who are online now wouldn’t be in a public library instead, they would simply be doing something else just like in the pre-Internet era.
So what really has lost out to the Internet?
Work aside, which chunk of your day has surfing replaced?
