An Alarming Statistic

Courtesy of Ad Age:

Trade paper reports that American workers would waste the equivalent of 551,000 years during 2005 reading blogs, online web diaries and gossip sheets, which have exploded in numbers in recent years.

About 35 million workers – one in four of the labour force in the United States – spend 3 1/2 hours, or 9 per cent, of their working week on blogs, the survey found.

I do take a little umbrage at the word “waste,” which depends, of course, on which blogs you’re reading.
