Spending all day online

Here's an interesting article from the NY Times about the amount of time that kids spend online.  It describes a new study from the Kaiser Foundation that finds today's kids, aged 8 to 18, spend an average of 7 1/2 hours a day using electronic devices (phones, tvs, computers, etc.).

One amazing fact jumped out at me - by multitasking, they actually manage to obtain 11 hours of media content in that 7 1/2 time period.

And I thought I was on the computer too much.
