I hope LB will excuse a post that’s not about law, sociology, politics or NU. It’s about this whole blogging, internet thing.
If you are reading this, then you are not watching TV. That’s a good thing for everyone except TV network executives, and I thought this article, which I first found on Andrew Sullivan’s blog (there you go) was an interesting examination of the implications of that fact. Here’s the trailer — Wikipedia, in every language in which it is published, represents about 100 million hours of human endeavor. Where did those people find the time? Well, some might have come from the 200 billion hours of TV watched every year in the USA alone.
The flip side, of course, is that while I am writing this, I am not working.
