Thanks for the link b!X, it made me think of the Stanford University report that said that the web damaged connectivenes because it found that people who were online sent less snail-mail letters and talked on the phone less. My favorite quote from the report is this,

"A key finding of the study is that "the more hours people use the Internet, the less time they spend in contact with real human beings," said Stanford Professor Norman Nie, Director of SIQSS and principal investigator along with his co-investigator Professor Lutz Erbring of the Free University of Berlin. "This is an early trend that, as a society, we really need to monitor carefully.""
