quality time

In the late spring and early summer, five-thirty to six-thirty I water my plants in the flower pots. This days, second half of September, itís before the sunrise and Iíve introduced an early Internet hour. Then, Iíve lost the Internet connection for two days and it turns into early reading hour. What an experience! My mind was fresh, my spirit was fresh, my perception was alert. And Iíve realized how valuable time, quality time, I was wasting on Internet.

Actually, any Internet hour during any day is mostly Internet waste. The stuff on the Internet are data (facts), often of questionable reality, often vulgar data, not information. Information is born in oneís mind. A pile of facts don't comprise knowledge. Analyzing, hypothesizing, and concluding from data makes information.

You can't google for knowledge. (Elaine Chaika)

The main sin, terrible sin, of the Internet is that it averages human achievements. It is difficult, if not impossible, for most people to think otherwise than the crowd around them, and Internet and social media are dangerous crowd.

We've all heard that a million monkeys banging on a million typewriters will eventually reproduce the entire works of Shakespeare. Now, thanks to the Internet, we know this is not true. (Robert Wilensky)
