“Never trust a computer you can't throw out a window.'
—STEVE WOZNIAK, APPLE COFOUNDER
Useless work doesn't become more useful if it's done on a computer. In fact, a number of studies suggest that the net impact of computers on the workplace is that it not only hasn't increased productivity, but instead may actually have made things worse.
What do you do on your computer? Take the following quiz, and when you look at the results, askyourself if that's the way you want to use your time. It's all too easy to lose track of time when you're online. Set a timer to remind yourself when you've had your allowance for the day.
