Internet, you are my favourite waste of time...

March 2000

The Austrian Research Project "Slow Motion" made me chat (via ICQ) with a fellow internet researcher who referring to the Generation@ Study claims that computer-mediated communication is only a waste of time. Well, I wonder how can we actually know if we invest our time wisely or just waste it? It's a tough question. It sure is one of the most important questions in life for us mortal human beings. So how come they have the answer? Why is it that they think connecting to other people on-line which comes along with all kinds of feelings, thoughts and experiences ranging from frustration or boredom to surprise or happiness, is only a waste of time? I tried to find out. (conversion in German only)
