Are you BRAVE enough to take the Internet Pledge?...  okay.... let's find out....

1)  I will have a cup of coffee in the morning and read my newspaper like I used to, before the Web.

2)  I will eat breakfast with a knife and fork and not with one hand typing.

3)  I will get dressed before noon.

4)  I will make an attempt to clean the house, wash clothes, and plan dinner before even thinking of the Web.

5)  I will sit down with pen and paper, and write a letter to those unfortunate few friends and family that are Web-deprived.

6)  I will call someone on the phone to talk, who I cannot contact via the Web.

7)  I will read a book...if I still remember how.

8)  I will listen to those around me and their needs, and stop telling them to turn the TV down so I can hear the music on the Web.

9)  I will not be tempted during TV commercials to check for email.

10) I will try and get out of the house at least once a week, if it is necessary or not.

11) I will remember that my bank is not forgiving if I forget to balance my checkbook because I was too busy on the Web.

12) Last, but not least, I will remember that I must go to bed sometime ... and the Web will always be there tomorrow. . . .  ( but let me go check, just once more today .... )
