Stressed Out Without Technology

From a study by MTV and the Associated Press on what makes young Americans (13-24) happy, this fun quote:
"Cell phones, the Internet and other technologies are integrally woven into the lives of today's young people and nearly two thirds say they make people happier. Half of those young people polled say the Internet alone helps them feel happier. And contrary to popular views of technology as a source of stress, many young people would be more stressed out without technology, with nearly half saying they never turn off their cell phones - even when they're trying to chill out."

The study included an April 2007 survey with 1,280 respondents and several focus discussion groups around the US.

Living a Media Life, indeed.
