Another belated addition to the ‘internet is life’ topic.

I was listening to National radio and they were discussing the effects of media in general in lives and how people construct their time around media outlets such as TV, internet. Apparently, due according to the research doen in the states an overwhelming majority of people surveyed spend more time using media then sleeping.
I think this is an interesting point if we are too examine questions regading how connected we are in day to day life and how technology is constructing society.

Also, regarding being connected. According to latest news, Telecom is looking to experiment with wireless “Hotspots”. Locations around the city where you can connect to the internet. Yet another step towards a global network or at least a truly mobile network system.

It will be interesting to see if it is practical, also how it will affect day to day life, build community.
