Internet addiction

Lily told me about this article from the New York Times that talks about how some kids in Korea are getting dangerously obsessed with going online. Thanks for the tip, Lily! :)

…These young people are not battling alcohol or drugs. Rather, they have severe cases of what many in this country believe is a new and potentially deadly addiction: cyberspace.

They come here, to the Jump Up Internet Rescue School, the first camp of its kind in South Korea and possibly the world, to be cured.

Wow! Do you know anyone who you’d say is “addicted” or “obsessed” with going online? Do you think it is dangerous? Is getting outdoors and active a good solution? Tell me what you think!!

I might be one of those people, since when I read “boot camp”, I immediately thought of the program that lets you run Windows on a Mac.

But seriously, you just have to find a good balance…
