As a lifelong observer of the human condition I have always been fascinated in the activities of others, and in trying to determine what makes them 'tick' and brings them fulfilment in life.

Computer Addiction Pb: A Study of Computer Dependency
This is not a belief I personally share, in spite of the fact that I spend much of my life staring at a VDU screen, but one which I came to understand and appreciate fully. People differ in their needs, aptitudes and in their cognitive styles, and happy are they who are able to find an activity which perfectly matches their personality. The 'computer dependents', who shared their beliefs, their pains and their happiness with me, have enriched my understanding of psychology as no textbook ever could.
Their honesty and their ability to lay bear their weaknesses as well as their strengths have proven how dangerous it is to condemn what one does not understand or to show prejudice against those who differ from ourselves. Early readings about 'computer junkies' and 'hackers' suggested that if I pursued this research I might spend my time with people who were barely human and who were unable to converse with others on any meaningful level.
How untrue this proved to be. I met some of the most fascinating people of my life.
