I used to do my job without the internet. Now that would be impossible.

A group of friends discussed what we did before email, voicemail, twitter, texting, the internet etc. etc. Answer: we talked. There were social clubs, dinner clubs, book clubs and so on to see and be seen; to interact and develop social skills; to help and be helped. The comment from the reported who said that she and her husband rarely talk and that they sit together in the evening with their laptops is a sad statement on today's society.
Social and service clubs like the Rotary, Lions, Kiwanis and so on are starving for members because people today have social networks and have no need or time to volunteer.
I, too, could not do my job without the internet, but I could turn it off afterwards.
