06-15-2010 Tuesday – The ‘blurring’ of work and life…

This a complicated subject…from the ‘nuclear’ family to the ‘connected’ or ‘anywhere’ family.

So, are you one of those that need an on-line fix?  Here are a few articles from nyt.com and cnn.com that some of ‘us’ may be “too” plugged in:

It’s a he-said/she-said kinda thing…some say our brain can’t adapt…I say (and many agree) our brain will adapt…and change…and evolve…

So, how’s this impacting the family?  I have more ‘time’ at home because I can “work” at home.  But is time ‘working’ at home better than less time at home and more at “work”?
