Screen based lives.

  1. I can't articulate this very well, so I figured here is as good a place as any.
    Anyone here ever get concerned over how screen-centred our lives are? For example, most people working in an office or anything spend their day working on a computer. They go home, and what are the most popular ways to relax? Video games, internet, television. Couple that with the portable screens (phones, ipods, tablet computers) and its a staggering amount of time sitting in front of screens.
    Any thoughts?

    I tend to agree, I watch alot of movies on my laptop or tablet and am always online contacting people, but in the interim I do go out alot , mostly outdoorsy stuff so yes I put in alot of screen time , but in no means am I a hermit, and it doesn't hurt that I don't play video games
