4:00 am... surfing the net....
Why surfing the net?
Why not flipping pages? burning bandwidth? ....killing time??
Do they call it surfing because those who do it can't actually surf but wish to in some way be associated with water sports?
I've had a little problem, with people so freely using the term surfing, for some time. Channel-surfing?!!? Someone sitting on a couch eating fritos actually thinks they're surfing?!!! NO!! They're not surfing! They're looking for something to hold their interest until the next half-hour block begins! These peoples' lives are a series of half-hour chunks (or sometimes fifteen minutes if you want to get into the Space Ghost's of the world).
And they're surfing.
I don't think so.
