Internet or TV?

Thanksgiving Eve and I am really excited because it means I am off tomorrow more than anything.

What to do! What to do! 

I mean who am I kidding. I got a whole lot of things to do tomorrow. But I have roughly five (5) hours tonight after the baby goes to bed for me. 

But before I know it I already found myself browsing into twitter, reading news around the world online, catching family and friends news via facebook. Wow!  I didn't really plan that and yet I find it really relaxing and enjoyable.

And then I thought to myself...How many of us would be in the internet and how many of us are on TV? Ten years ago I would have been reading a book and five years ago I was definitely watching TV mostly dvds and lds.  I know you will probably say how about all the other things we do like spending time with family, out partying or the gym.

I am just curious between the two,  are we slowly replacing our TV with the Internet or is that just me?

  1. TV is about controlled programming while the internet is more of a user experience where you want it and when you want it. The broadcasting networks know this and thus have expanded their coverage to include the internet as a medium of distribution. So it's the internet for me.

    My two cents.
