Internet & Networking While browsing the ever-wider world web today, I came across a story about IBM's patent of a sort of "Facebook Remote Control." It was appalling. Do we seriously need more single-purpose devices that will enable us to sit around more wasting more time than we already do? Does anyone really need to seclude themselves from the world even more to publish their lives on yet another teen-infested network? Must we really always be connected to the net? Read on for my ramble concerning a dark side of technology.

It's my newspaper(digg,osnews,google news, science daily and so many more), sometimes my library, my tv(youtube, hulu, crackle and others), my radio(jamendo, pandora, aol music, last fm etc.), and all connected conveniently by a little blue cable into my laptop(it doesn't move much).

That being said as much as I love the internet I spent most of my day today in college then an hour at a state park and about 3 hours on reading(for school). So while I agree the Internet takes up a good part of my day it does because I can do so much here.
