Excessive use of the internet
Drudge is linking today to an article about internet addicts. A Stanford University study says that 1/8 of the U.S. population uses the internet excessively. The "typical addict is a single white male who spends approximately 30 hours a week surfing the net." (Source)
I wonder about a couple of things.
1.) What role does pornography play in internet addiction? How about online games? Surely no one is addicted to blogging.
2.) Do scientists label the folks who watch television for 30 hours a week "addicts"? (I think a lot of people do log that much television time!)
