I’m sure, being the Internet-savvy users that you all are, that a lot of your life is online. You order your books and music through Amazon, you order takeaway pizza with your iPhone, you rent movies through your media center, you Google your medical symptoms, you pay your bills with online banking and you order your groceries through supermarket websites. In short, you can do pretty much anything online these days so the number of reasons for leaving your home start to diminish. Sad? Well that depends on your point of view and priorities.
Our infographic today comes from CollegeAtHome.com and shows all the different things you can do online which allows you to never leave your home. The one that I most identify with is telecommuting. I work from home online full time and if it wasn’t for the Internet, I wouldn’t have the best job of my life. Here in Germany, my father-in-law also telecommuted but it took many years and much form filling to get the powers-that-be to agree to it. It seems that the situation is no different elsewhere in the world where employers resist the very idea of their employees working from home naked.
Has doing things on the Internet made you stay home more and more? What parts of the infographic do you most identify with? Have you ever Googled your medical symptoms and convinced yourself you have a rare tropical disease? Let us know in the comments!
