I think that the internet really makes people lazy, especially students. They get all their research sources from the internet, they do their homework using the net, etc. Little do they know that not everything on the internet is true. Information from the internet is often inaccurate and unreliable. It is still best to consult books from the library, even if it can be very tedious.

I don't think it's just the internet that makes us lazy, there are many things that make us lazy - tv, computer games, etc. But I don't think laziness is the issue here, us humans are naturally drawn to whatever brings us the most pleasure and lets face it, a sink full of dishes or huge pile of washing really doesn't bring us much pleasure...well not the majority of us anyway. The internet, tv's, computer games etc do bring pleasure, therefore we are naturally drawn to them. There's a saying "swallow the frog first thing in the morning" (or something like that), I think it's buddhist, it basically means do your worst thing task for the day first thing in the morning and you won't spend the rest of the day worry or stressing about it. Sometimes I "swallow the frog" as soon as I wake up, but I often blend that frog with a little bit of something I like to make the task more manageable.

i guess to some extent yes, it does make a person lazy.. so, the key to redeeming your more productive self is by practicing discipline. discipline is the only answer to get rid or at least minimize the addiction on certain things, so, manage yourself, manage your time to maximize the things that you can do without relying only or focusing you attention at the net
