I do not know, O'Tink, but I will say that I am always glad to see that question asked...

...because the wonderful capacity of computers to extend our human potential, we do need to take care that WE direct THEIR evolution, and not vice versa. 

In the waning months of Ask.com, a young person came up with the question of what did people DO with themselves before computers...well, the oldsters came out of the woodwork for THAT one! Pages and pages of wonderful activities I recognized but had all but forgotten about...

I use computers daily and love the convenience, plus the world-wide potential of the Internet - but still glad my formative years were pre-digital.

@ Virginia

I even use the public library, since I prefer reading from a real book rather than a Kindle. :)

They speak of addiction, and it is dependence and slavery.

for instance "verisimilitude" - which reminds of the - err - veracity of certain recent news.
