business news in context, analysis with attitude

by Kevin Coupe

Fast Company has a piece about the things that people would rather give up rather than go without the internet.

According to the story, polls say that 73 percent of Americans would give up alcohol rather than the internet. Forty-three percent say they’d give up exercise. Twenty-one percent say they’d prefer to give up sex. And only 10 percent say they’d rather give up their car.

(As Fast Company notes, this means that Americans would rather drive than go celibate. Go figure.)

I’d just like to say that, for the record, while I love going online, I wouldn’t even want to give up seafood risotto or red wine rather than lose the internet.

But that’s just me.
