Demotivation vs. attention absorbed by the 'net

Posted by rgb on November 18, 2007, at 9:54:15

I spend most of my free time on the net, and I suppose many here do as well. I'm wondering how much of my lack of activity is intrinsic, and how much is due to all the attention being absorbed by the internet?

I sometimes wonder whether I would have been much more active if there had been no computers, or whether I would just have stared at the ceiling all day.

I really don't want to argue about language so I won't start the "is it an addiction" argument here :) But I have to say that I find the computer an attention magnet that it takes a lot of concentration to pull away from.

But again, I'm wondering - is this because I find the computer so great, or because I find the alternatives so unappealing? Of course you don't know me so you won't be able to answer that for me, but any thoughts?
