Unplugged for 24 Hours

Colleges and universities across five continents took part in a research project investigating the relationship between young adults and their electronic media, e.g., Internet, cell phones, TV, music. Not surprisingly, the students talked about being bored, disconnected, having nothing to do, lonely, frustrated, the day being very difficult . . . symptoms of addiction. You can read their thoughts – it’s very revealing of our society. I’m guessing that many of us would have the same reactions.
