I could live without the Internet, but I don’t because of the extreme time consuming consequences. The direct information is great. I will never forget my first job interview; I didn’t even know what company it was I was applying to and what they did. Therefore I didn’t get hired!
On the other hand, I find myself (and I’m not the only one) not able to concentrate for a long time. I would like to read for hours, but Facebook and Twitter are always calling for attention. We’re all becoming a zap generation. Is that bad? I don’t know!
