Family is Better with the Internet

This BBC News article on how technology is making families “better” made my day.

Perhaps it’s because I have some “real” data to provide my better-half when it’s 3am in the morning and my wife asks what I’m doing and I say “blogging”…

… and now I can say “blogging and making our family better!”

… no, I can’t.

But, it’s true (to a certain extent).  Email has helped us, right?  We’re better off because of electronic mail, right?

Hmm.

Although the internet and technology has helped communication, I’ve found it is also the easiest way to distract me from the things that matter most.
