How much does the Internet contribute to your personal productivity?

The Internet has immensely contributed to the pace, quantity and perhaps the quality of information available at one's disposal. However, there are many distracting things out there in the world of the wild Internet. If you were to take into account everything you do on the Internet and try quantifying, how does the Internet fare in terms of contributing to your personal productivity? While I understand that there are some more adept at using the Internet to increase their productivity, others end up wasting too much of their time on the Internet. On a related note, would it ever be possible for your productivity to go higher in Internet's absence? I am remembering an idiom on fire in relation to the Internet:

Fire is a good slave, but a bad master

Has the Internet been a bad master to you?

tynamite's avatar I'm good at following routines and meeting deadlines, so the internet does not distract me if I need to get something done. I technically never put things off, because all I do is swap a task around with another if I want to delay something.

The only way the internet helps is my Blackberry because I can always keep on top of my emails and always be in the loop.

What's an assertion, and what should I type in?

Compesh is a question and answer (and debate) website, so before you make a debate, you better learn what an assertion is. I suppose you already know what a question is, and that you've typed it in the box. ;)

An assertion, is basically a statement you can make, that is either true or false.

Richer people have better health.

The question for that would be, Do richer people have better health?

And don't forget to make your assertion, match your question.
