Being online is the way the world does business these days. Back in the 90s, David Bowie predicted it. He said the way of the future was the internet, and that the relationship between the user and the interface would only grow more and more profound and symbiotic. It sure seems that is the way it has gone. (Check out the David Bowie video below.)
Is there anything you can’t get on the internet? This has become both a good thing and a bad thing. It’s one of the ways the relationship has become symbiotic. Although one might argue, parasitic. What do we give the internet in return?
Think about what you want from the internet. Think about how much time and energy you want to give the internet. What is your main goal being online?
Social? News? Your job requires it? Scheduling? Ordering goods online? Ordering goods such as tickets or massages? Take inventory of how much you are online, and how much time you are online. Is it a healthy relationship for you, or is it draining? Think about it. Consider.
