I'm a writer and had emailed this group in 2009 regarding reaching out to members for possible interviews and understanding individual stories. I have been researching the science of Internet-related addiction, and the effects of technology use for five years. I want to thank you all for for the time you offered back then.
Since I had reached out to this group for some input, thought I'd let you know the report got published this month and here is the link: http://caravanmagazine.in/periscope/totally-wired
I hope it does justice to the range of issues concerning behavioral addictions, as viewed by a variety of people and across a variety of fields. Hope that it is of value to members and others interested in the field.
