Dilbert of the Day

Someone wrote to advise that Daily Dilbert is a great way to pass the time when you're unemployed.  Sometimes I find the humour a bit subtle (as in today's strip – see below) but it's always quality stuff unlike some of the other crap that's out there in the many funny pages on the Intraweb.  (Plus, you can use the Dilbert “Mission Statement Generator” in your 506 class and still get a 96% – trust me on that one!)

    Not like we need more ways to waste time, or anything!

    At least not on the Internet! I'm mostly trying to waste a lot of time reading and sleeping since finishing school!

    Blasphemy! Reading is NOT a waste of time!
    (Unless you start after dinner and don't stop until 7:30 am when you finish, as I somehow managed to do on Saturday. School's done and I still can't break the all-nighter habit. I have to say, though, that this one was a lot more enjoyable.)
    Actually, we're technically “reading” on the Internet, too, but it feels a lot more like a time-waster (and soul-sucker) than when it's a book. Why is that? Why is the Internet more like TV than a book/magazine/newspaper? I don't know why, but it is, and I still say that it's blasphemy to lump books in with the time-wasters.

    Sleeping probably isn't a waste of time either if we want to get technical about it!
    But yeah, one thing I always believed but had reinforced at library school is that all reading is good reading – whether it's reading a gaming manual, a comic book, a newspaper or even a blog (although the books I've been reading since finishing school definitely feel like time wasters compared to some of the more challenging books I might be reading instead.)
    I think the Internet, because it presents itself via a screen, seems to have more in common with TV than books, which is why we make the association with the Net being a new form of “boob tube” rather than an alternate form of reading.
    But the Internet is a lot more interactive, varied and engaging than TV in my view.
