The Internet and Everyday Life...

We are reading this book by Wellman (Editor) & Haythornthwaite (Editor). So far, we have considered the role of the internet in relation to our off-line life. The editors make the point that both must be considered when studying on-line activity, and I agree. There are times that my off-line life actually dictates what I do or do not do on-line. For instance, I prefer to do my grocery-shopping on-line because it saves me time and is more convenient. In addition, I do most of our family's apparel shopping on-line for the same reasons. In these days of studying and car-pooling, time is precious. The internet helps me to be more efficient with my time.
