The television industry was shaken last October when the ratings from Nielsen Media Research showed that a huge part of a highly prized slice of the American population was watching less television. As the fall TV season began, viewership among men from 18 to 34 fell 12 percent compared with the year before, Nielsen reported. And for the youngest group of adult men, those 18 to 24, the decline was a steeper 20 percent.

...

The notion that people who use the Internet might spend less time watching television is not new, of course.

But Jeffrey I. Cole, who heads the UCLA Internet Study at the University of California, Los Angeles, said, "We could show from day one that Internet users watched less television." But four years ago, when the first survey appeared, television executives argued that "Internet guys are different" and would not watch much television anyway. Now, Internet use has so thoroughly permeated society that "the differences between users and nonusers has narrowed significantly," he said, and "our work is showing that some of the time for the Internet is coming from television."

That is not news to Sean Hyde-Moyer, 38, a player of computer games whose own experience suggests that the shift away from television among young adults weaned on computers is continuing as they grow older.

i love the idea of being "weaned on computers," even if i'm still wistful of the days when "internet guys are different" and when less people were online. of course the trade off being that now there are a million more cool things out there to waste the time i really don't have.....

in the trade of intimacy for learning, how would the classes be structured? a kiss for 5 minutes on photoshop? sex for the high end mac?


Have you been hoping to find a job in a creative industry.

I have professional expertise training people who have gone on to work
at Ad Agency's and Magazines in Los Angles.

I will train one cute, sweet, sexy young girl what it takes to get a
job using your skills learned from me.

If you keep up the training and I can trust you I can help you get freelance work.

The main programs you will need to know are: Photoshop, Illustrator, InDesign, and QuarkXpress.

For creative work these programs need to be learned on an Apple Mac.

After we begin this arrangement I may be able to lend you a top of the line Mac.

What I seek is your appreciation joyously expressed by you inviting me
to know you intimately.

Please only answer this if you can be completely comfortable with this part of the plan.

I will make sure this will be at your comfort level not mine.

Let me know what is good for you and maybe we can help each other.

I am a sexy and cute white "gentle" man, 30, artist, very intelligent and a great conversationalist.

I am sane, emotionally mature, and so should you be.

Let's have some fun together while you gain professional training and I gain some long lost intimacy.

Rupert!!!!!

the name sedna better not stick for the following reasons:
  • it is not rupert.
  • it ruins the little roman pantheon of gods/goddesses found in the planets' names.
  • My Very Educated Mother Just Served Us Six Pizzas, Sally? ummm no.
  • do we really need another S named planet?
  • i understand she's of importance to the inuit people, but still her story leaves something (a strong female role?) missing.

    tangentially. why do the germans have a completely different name for mostly harmless? (lj cut hidding a picture) )
