Public Opinion Suggests Internet Addiction Is a Problem

Public Opinion Suggests Internet Addiction Is a Problem | Passe-partout | Scoop.it

By SodaHead - http://bit.ly/xOdEYB 

@sodahead

 

Internet addiction has been discussed as a "clinical disorder" since 1996, when Kimberly S. Young wrote a study on it for CyberPsychology and Behavior.

 

Since then, the Internet has become widely available in developed nations, reaching nearly 80 percent of the U.S. population in 2010, according to World Bank records.

Now, thanks to Bill Gates, Steve Jobs, and a handful of other developers, the Internet is on our desks, in our backpacks, in our pockets, and even on our televisions.

 

Naturally, the risk of Internet addiction is up, and some studies have shown it could be as powerful an addiction as substance abuse.

SodaHead asked the public if they thought they were addicted, and were surprised to see how many respondents admitted to it -- especially young people.

In the genes, but which ones?

Earlier studies that linked specific genes to intelligence were largely wrong, Harvard researchers find

For decades, scientists have understood that there is a genetic component to intelligence, but a new Harvard study has found both that most of the genes thought to be linked to intelligence are probably not in fact related to it, and identifying intelligence's specific genetic roots may still be a long way off.

How To Create Value, Give Visibility To Others and Make Money By Curating Presentations: The Note&Point Example

How To Create Value, Give Visibility To Others and Make Money By Curating Presentations: The Note&Point Example | Passe-partout | Scoop.it

Robin Good: Note and Point is an elegantly curated set of high-quality visual presentations selected and described/commented.

 

The collection is organized in four sections: Keynote, PowerPoint, PDF and SlideRocket.

 

This is a great example of how effective curation can create value, while providing greater visibility to the authors showcased and integrating an elegant and perfectly fitting advertising model (AdFusion) which is both inobtrusive and highly contextual. (I found the ads on Note&Point so interesting that I reloaded their home page multiple times to see them all, and clic the ones I was most interested in.)

 

Great example. Recommended. 9/10

4 Ways to Become a Leader People Want to Follow

4 Ways to Become a Leader People Want to Follow | Passe-partout | Scoop.it

There's no Leadership without Followership!

 

We’ve all had bosses we were proud to follow. People we’d do anything for. Even run through brick walls.

On the other hand, most of us have also had bosses we follow only because, well, they’re the boss. So what separates the leaders we want to follow from the leaders we have to follow?

Video: How students are using Second Life for digital learning | Passe-partout | Scoop.it

"Second Life is an open-ended online world. Users design their own surroundings, and create avatars as their characters to work there. The avatars can interact with each other; they can cooperate towards a common goal, or make business deals with each other, or sabotage each other. Second Life can facilitate some interesting experiments that might not be possible in real life."
