Using the Web—without being used by it

The Internet is a servant, not a master.

When I got my first personal computer a few years ago, I was completely enthralled by the new world of information and speed it promised me. And I strove to master its potential.

Gradually, however, I found myself more and more absorbed. This interfered with my healthy interaction with others. When the computer shut down, I shut down. This was unusual, since I am normally rather gregarious.
