I have noticed a strange affliction going around lately. Friends and clients both seam to have it and it doesn’t matter what age or sex you are. I am even showing signs of it. It is called “Becoming a Surfist”.
Right now you must be thinking – what the hell is he talking about? Bear with me though. More and more people when they have some spare time (maybe only minutes) are spending it surfing the internet. They aren’t online for a specific purpose they are just surfing. Maybe a bit of Facebook followed by the news, followed by some random stuff like “Monsters in Alloa”.
With more and more people using smartphones and tablets the internet has become increasing accessible. Couple this with more integration with our daily lives (think internet banking) it is no wonder that more people are getting online. The downside of this is that when someone is not online they think they might be missing out on something. I actually know someone who thinks like this!!
1. Needing to surf right know (everything else can wait)
2. Can get very grumpy when interrupted (in my case anyhow)
So next time you pick up that iPad and click on Safari just think “Am I becoming a Surfist?”
