From an August 20 article at Forbes.com:
According to comScore, a Web data tracker, Americans spent 302 billion minutes online last month. That’s 6,760 lifetimes at 85 years apiece. Just where does all that time go?
And that’s just Americans. The number is probably something like a hundred billion gazillion if you factor in the rest of the world.
The bad part is, I contributed more than my fair share. That’s a confession. I have to constantly fight the temptation to spend too much time online.
Apparently John Mark Reynolds has struggled with this, too. A while back he made some practical suggestions for minimizing distractions and maximizing the use of personal and family time.
