The following is a fun infographic that depicts the differences between the world wide web in 1996 as compared to what it is like now in 2011. Americans used to spend an average of 30 minutes a month on the internet, now we are up to 27 hours per month.
That seems a bit extreme if you ask me.
What are we not doing now that we used to do with all that time in 1996? Obviously we are sitting on a computer or having our noses buried in a portable device. Does this mean more people are working via the internet? Spending less time with family and more time working?
Or are we wasting time by doing meaningless things on the internet? Playing games? Surfing the web for no reason?
Do you think Americans are more or less productive now than 15 years ago?
