The Virtual Revolution: Homo-Interneticus

The Virtual Revolution Episode 4 Part 6: ‘Homo-Interneticus’ – Is the web changing the way we act, behave and interact with our fellow human beings? What long term effects is the web having on our children – are children today unable to tell the difference between the ‘Virtual’ world and the ‘Real’ world? The final episode in this series explores all of these issues and offers a glimpse into what the future might hold for all of us as a consequence of this ‘Virtual Revolution’.

    OK, I am a Web bear, which probably means I am not a native homo-interneticus… I suggest if anyone is going to take the test, to do it at a desk and not while you are in bed or hibernation mode…:~)

    yes, a few times during the test bailey started barking and i could not concentrate at all…so also do it where it is quiet!! and agree, at a desk would be better, but i usually just have my laptop in my lap…

    i like the sound of web bear….I am fast but cannot multitask….maybe if i would slow down i could… :-)
