Things I'm trying to reconcile

1. My sense that the Internet, in its many manifestations, is the structural element / organizing principle of the still-emerging 21st century music economy, and that "winning at the internet" is a key technique for making a living with your own music,

and

2. My sense that Internet addiction is a real phenomenon, with real negative physical and psychological consequences.

Ugh.

Curious if this was inspired by the sense that you're getting addicted?

I understand that the most effective cure for Internet addiction is Diaudid.

I thought the Internet was a form of dilaudid!

As for your question, I suppose that as an ambitious musician, who sees the value of these tools, and who is not really much good at anything besides music... I'm probably at least in the "at risk" category...

If that's true, I'm doomed.
