"As we expand our fields of communication and influence through the Net, so we compress the time we have. In The Condition of Postmodernity, social geographer and theorist David Harvey refers frequently to time-space compression: process that so revolutionize the objective qualities of space and time that we are forced to alter, sometimes in quite radicl ways, hpw we represent the world." I guess I dont really have an idea its more of a thought. I like to think of the Internet time as a Casino or a Grocery store. Minus you system clock you never know what time it is and you get lost in the moment. YOu could spend HOURS on the Net and not even know it. Maybe if people didn't focus so much on Internet time they could find real time during the day to get things accomplished.

I agree with your idea of 'internet time' and 'real time.' There does need to be a control of ones self to not lose yourself to 'internet time.'

However, I think the most creative moments are when you lose track of time. When you can forget about the human contruct of time and focus intently on other thigns.

I agree with Betsy...the exciting part of a movie is when you lose track of everything...that is the exciting part of everything...

Time flys when you're having fun.
