An article came across in the news this morning ...
Internet dominates campus life, but little use is for academics
By Maryanne George
The South End Newspaper (Wayne Univeristy)
When the rent on his East Lansing, Mich., apartment is due,
Mark Herberholz logs onto an Internet poker site for a few
hands. He says the income from his winnings helps to pay
the bills and pass the time.
The Michigan State senior says he spends about four hours
a day playing computer games, instant messaging with friends
and surfing the Internet.
But he spends only about six hours a week on the computer
doing his homework.
The article then goes on to explore how computing basically
defines student's social life ... computers are more useful as a
communication tool .... students use them that way, but the
school doesn't ...
