Frolicking on the Internet

Omar Gallaga, a technology writer for the Austin American-Statesman's and avid Twitter user, prints a letter he received from a reader. The letter excoriates him and others for using social networking sites instead of working, lauds Andrew Keen's The Cult of the Amateur, and suggests that time spent online is time spent away from volunteering and making the country better.

Gallaga welcomes readers to post their comments online, and promises to "print out the responses and mail them back to her." Want to mount a counterargument?

i've been spending time talking to 2 people who have differing views on a film i reviewed. it cut in to my writing schedule but it felt very much like productive (cultural) work, if i dare say so.
