America's View of the Internet

from /.:

Quote:
It won't make you dinner or rub your feet, but nearly one in four Americans say that the Internet can serve as a substitute for a significant other for some period of time, according to a new poll released today by 463 Communications and Zogby International. The poll examined views of what role the Internet plays in people's lives and whether government should play a greater role in regulating it. The online survey was conducted Oct. 4-8, 2007, included 9,743 adult respondents nationwide, and carries a margin of error of +/- 1.0 percentage point. From the results blog post: 'More than half of Americans believe that Internet content such as video should be controlled in some way by the government. Only 33% of 18 to 24 year-olds supported government stepping in on content, while 72% of those over 70 years of age support government regulation and ratings. More than one in four Americans has a social networking profile such as MySpace or Facebook. Among 18-24 year-olds, it's almost mandatory - 78% of them report having a social networking profile. Americans may love the Internet, but most are not prepared to implant it into their brain, even if it was safe. Only 11% of respondents said they be willing to safely implant a device that enabled them to use their mind to access the Internet.'

He's just speaking the truth....is he not?

When we are in our 70's we'll all be out of touch with the latest gee-wiz stuff that the younger society has to offer. They won't give a shit about us, and I won't about them.

I fail to understand why people get so sensitive about the truth. :gun

MY wife thinks I'm addicted to the net now. I'd hate to see how far the addiction would be now if it had been around since I was a kid. I already have to limit my daughter's use of it to strictly weekend, unless it's to look up something for school.
