Wasting Time on the Internet? Not Really

I have been interested in the ongoing debate regarding whether the internet is evil or good, and whether it tells the truth or spawns lies. It appears that there is an argument for both the good that it can facilitate (i.e., education, inspiration, information, work/life tools, etc.) or the damage that can come from it (i.e., lies or hurting other people, etc.). There are those that say young people are not learning to write or read sufficiently. Meanwhile there are those, like Kenneth Goldsmith, who are saying that the internet is producing new skills that weren’t needed before that benefit both individual growth and society.

The truth may be in the middle.  What do you think?
