Lightbulb An observation

I noticed that my daughter was not at all in any hurry to enrol when she was offered a place at uni.(online enrolment). I told her classes fill up and her choice may be limited if she did not use some expediency. Once upon a time we all had to line up to get things/into things. Has anyone thought about the way cyberspace is affecting our sense of urgency? The lack of a crowd can affect the way we behave. Will that be a good/bad outcome?

I guess some people have developed a "just a click should make it happen" attitude.

We are definitely an instant gratification society these days, and the availability of information and connection on the Internet makes a lot of things merely a click away: porno, info, games, pictures, videos, friends, etc.
