In my advance composition course we are talking about things that get in the way of our writing, and of course, procrastination was one of the top talked about. Will Richardson today discusses a recent poll that showed those who identify as “procrastinators” is up to 26% of Americans, from 5% 20 years ago. What’s to blame? Technology! If you look at my previous post for my media journal, you might see why. Those of us who are online constantly are also constantly doing “communication” via facebook, livejournal, blogs, instant messenger, etc., while working (or even, forgetting working all together).
