  2. We are moving from a passive state of just reading, listening, watching to an interactive state of searching, selecting, participating.

    If it weren't for sports, my TV time would drop down to 2-3 hours per week at most. Like Guest said, at least on the Internet I'm being interactive.
  5. At least on the internet I don't get forced to watch adds between my shows.
